#004 - Goal Setting
Dec 22, 2020
Julian Sequeira & Bob Belderbos

In this episode we talk about goal setting: why it is important, tips and our goals.

Why is it important?
- Regain focus.
- By default you might be aiming too low.
- Inspire yourself and others.

Tips for setting good goals:
- Make them measurable (how we applied this building one of our products).
- Aim higher than you feel comfortable.
- Break them down into sub goals.
- Write them down (repeatedly) in the present tense.
- Have an accountability partner.

Our goals:
- In 2020 we achieved: launch of new products, most notably our PDM (PyBites Developer Mindset) coaching program / Bob went full time on PyBites / Julian: integrated mindset into PyBites.
- In 2020 we did not achieve: moving houses (Julian), reading/ books goal (Bob), ideal workout volume (both).
- For 2021 PyBites goals are: growing coaching business 5x (= acquiring a team), release the physical Tips book + more info products (hint: not only Python!)
- For 2021 our personal goals: move houses + increase kid's computer skills (Julian) / investing 101 + family travel post-covid (Bob)

Call to action:
- Write down your goals, make it a weekly / monthly habit, and have fun with it.
- If you want to talk about Python / Career goals hop on a strategy session with us: https://pybit.es/apply
