My 2019 GoaLs List

Hi, thanks for visiting my 2019 goals page.

Every year I set a list of goals I want to accomplish. I share my list publicly here and update my progress every month.

Why? For a number of reasons.

  1. As a life coach, I want to show that I walk my talk, but also that I’m not perfect. No one is. Pursuing ambitious goals rarely goes smoothly but that’s part of the game. 
  2. I want to inspire you to be more courageous with your goals and intentional with your time.
  3. I want to give you an idea and guidance of how you can set your own goals.

Feel free to leave a comment or question at the end.

Watch my video where I walk​ you through my 2019 goals and share what progress I’ve made so far along with additional information and insights.

  1. Mel

    Amazing video update! You’re so inspirational. Enjoyed listening to this and has motivated me to write my goals more specifically. I love journaling but need to get better with planning on more long term goals.

    • Tomas Svitorka

      Thanks Mel and also for listening to my video. These update videos are LONG!!!
      Absolutely, be specific with your goals. If you leave any room for negotiation (with yourself) your lazy self will find it and will try to make the most out of it.
      Glad it inspires you.

  2. Karl Gjertsen

    This is a really great idea. Not only can you share your goals with everyone, but you can see your progress.
    I might need to use this idea myself.
