Here are some things I’d like to accomplish by the end of 2019.

A lot of these are already planned but some are stretch goals!

Let’s see what happens – but I’ll remind myself in Todoist to look at this post come December 8th, 2019.

  1. Become a senior software engineer
  2. Start a podcast (#TechQueens)
  3. Read 30+ books
  4. Talk about technology or my career at 15+ events (conferences/Meetups/podcasts/etc.)
  5. Travel to Hawaii and another place I’ve never been (preferably outside the US)
  6. Write 5+ articles that get published outside of my personal website (Medium publication, external blog, etc.)

These are more long-term or broad goals.

  1. Be loved and love others 😊
  2. Give a TED talk
  3. Write a book
  4. Become a leader at a tech company (VP Eng, Chief Architect, CTO, CEO, etc.)
  5. Be on the radio
  6. Donate or raise $10K for charity
  7. Be involved in the production of a movie I’d actually watch and enjoy
  8. Record a song
  9. Live in Peru for 6+ months
  10. Have the ability to retire earlier but then decide not to because I’d probably get bored
  11. Be known as an industry wide expert in something
  12. Attend a masquerade ball
  13. Own a doggo
  14. Try out being a teacher
  15. Lead by example and influence a generation of minority women to break into and succeed in tech
