So this weekend marks the end of the Unstoppable Journey for me. I have been working to try and get caught up with a few of the blog posts and what not and really reflect on what this journey has meant. In this post I am going to rehash some of the previous points and see how things have changed over just these 12 weeks or so.
My stand is really about being a positive force in this world. I want to avoid the unnecessary drama that surrounds matters, focus on what does matter and try and help those struggling overcome challenges and obstacles. I want to provide the advice and experience I can to those willing to listen and help shape the world for the next generation.
My passion is really about programming, sports and mentoring. I love exercising my mind with learning more and more about the craft I have chosen for my life. I love picking up new programming languages, frameworks and bring ideas to reality through code. I also still love my baseball and being able to play each year. I look forward to taking that mound every opportunity I get. In both of these I love sharing my experiences and helping others learn what it is that I love so much. It brings me great joy to share this.
Change the world one line of code at a time sharing my journey and experiences along the way.

Short Term Goals
In the short term I hope to reshape how I spend my days and especially my free time. It is my goal to start focusing on my passions more and not be so easily distracted. Giving more time for the things I really enjoy doing should result in greater results than if I continue to go in multiple directions. Here are a few of the short term goals.
- Write code 10 hours a week
- Post one technical blog post each week
- Run more miles than days in a given month
- Play all 9 positions in a baseball game this year
- Start Drawing one hour a week, every week
Dream goals of mine would be things such as traveling and doing things I didn’t think I could still do. For instance on traveling, I would love to see the BaseBall Hall of Fame, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field and not related to baseball I would love to travel to Ireland and see the old castles there. I would love to walkrun the long endless fields that I see in pictures and not have to worry about work or deadlines or anything but the cool breeze off the ocean.
Overall, I have seen more of an evolution of the different aspects of this course. I always knew many of these things but the ideals are becoming much clearer. I can’t wait to see how this comes with me passed this course.
