My Professional Goals, Wishes and Dreams

Last night I tweeted that my biggest professional wish was to have Bill Simmons read one of my posts at fanshots.com. That would be amazing. I won’t lie. I look up to that guy big time. That thought got me thinking even more though. So much that I *almost* stayed up to write this post. However, I got smart, finished watching The Dark Knight and went to sleep.

The thoughts though didn’t go away. What are my professional wishes and dreams? At this point in my life and career what do I want to try and do? I’m not talking about way into the future. I’m talking about the next 6 to 12 months.

Side note: I really hate that where do you want to be in 5 years question. I’ve been making 5 year plans since I was 15 and none of them have come together the way I figured they would.

So, with those thoughts floating through my head here are some of the things that I would like to accomplish or get started in the next few months or so.

Guest Post – It’s something that I’ve never done. And something that I would like to do. Whether it’s about sports, life or something very specific I would like to give it a shot. I’ve loved the guest post pieces that I’ve been able to put up here from Veronica and Patrick and look forward to being able to do the same thing.

I’m also always to host guest posts from all of you. If you have something to say that you think would fit at The Reviews Are In please let me know and we can get it all set up. That would make me smile.

Get some charity partnerships started – Recently I added a widget in the blog sidebar to help support “To Write Love on Her Arms” and while the program has some hic-ups I do believe that it’s something worth pursuing and helping. Check out the link and see what the program is doing to help people who are struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.

I also have tentative plans to do some work with a charity this summer that helps to provide equipment, coaching and resources for youth athletics around the world. The event(s) being planned will be light hearted, super inclusive and FUN! They will be a great and easy way for all of us to pitch in and make a difference. It should not surprise any of you that I’m looking at helping a sports related charity. I only hope you’re stay tuned and help me out when the time comes.

Get on a podcast – You would think that this one would be easy. However, I’ve recorded pods in the past that haven’t hit the internet. And I’ve been in the planning process for pods that never got recorded. So you can see where I still have that little wish on my agenda. I would love for the podcast to be sports related because I know I wouldn’t run out of things to say that wouldn’t make me sound like an idiot. But I’ve made myself look foolish in the past, so I’m more than willing to do a pod and sound foolish now!

Write some collaborations – There are about 5 people that I can think of off the top of my head that I would love to write with. I’m not going to call them out here because that’s not fair to anyone at all. When the time comes I will be in contact with them and hope to be able to iron something out and get something awesome on the board. If you think we would have fun writing together friggin’ tell me and we can get the ball rolling!

There are more and more things that will continue to come to mind when I think about my life and what I want to accomplish. For now though I see those 4 things as more immediate goals.

If you have goals that you want to accomplish let me know – comment here – maybe I can help – or maybe I know someone who can help – I’d be just as happy to make something happen for you as I would be to see something happen for me!
