Mid-Year Goal Review

Did a mid-year review of some of my goals this past week. Some are coming along, some are done, some are in line to be finished by the end of the year and a couple will need to wait to next year. Goals are a good thing, but if you set 'em and forget 'em, they won't do you much good. I'm guilty of this just as much as everyone else. If you have goals that you set at the beginning of the year, dust 'em off, go over your progress and readjust.

A few of the goals that I can check off:
  • Be able to sharpen knives to a shaving edge
  • Build blow out kits and learn gun shot wound/traumatic injury first aid
  • Add a chunk to the emergency fund
  • Read at least one book a month (I've decided to cheat and use audiobooks)

A few of the goals that I am working on before the end of the year. Nothing monumental, but we work in baby steps 'round here:
  • Add to ammo stores - looking to put back half a case of defensive capable 5.56mm and 9mm
  • Add some more mags for the Glock (two regular, one extended) and AR (three)
  • Fix up some of my fighting/carry gear a bit
  • Rebuild the knife stable (sold off a few knives a bit back). Foolish!
  • Lose 20 pounds
  • Put some new tires on the family assault vehicle
  • Add a couple EDC items - need a dedicated flashlight for my EDC bag, a couple other minor things.
  • Want to get some good camping trips in...we haven't been able to get out as much as I'd like this year.
  • I want to get in some practice on some 1800s-tech stuff; soap making, candle making, maybe some leather working. Don't have firm plans yet.
Anyways, that's what I've got on my plate. Should be able to pull together more than that. What's on your agendas for the rest of the year, faithful readers?
