2023 Goals Themes
I just set up my website and the SSL is not active yet while writing this. I can’t wait to share my year’s resolution list that will cover many themes and aspects of my goals, both personal and professional.
As Steph Smith said “living life openly”, each year I openly share my year bilan of achievements on social. Now I normalize tweeting more as a better way to keep on track of documenting the goals I set.
Below you can find my tweet and its progress on each goal.
For who doesn’t know what OQP means, it’s an approach that you made and let Only Quality People on your circle. Fundamentally, there are two steps to setup OQP on your life:
Step one: define quality people
By choice, we as a human beings we tend to get the best things for our lives. As a community person, I do meet a lot of people, new friends in coffee shops, IRL events, online events and summits, and I constantly thinking and figuring out my personal definition of “quality people.” In my life, quality people are those who I feel pleasant surround them, the ones who support me, enhance me, inspire me to do better, to create better, bring me happiness and joy, and make me laugh.
Step two: protect quality people circle
The second step consists to figuring out how to create a distance between myself and those people in my circles who do not fit my definition. I dumped three old friends for their consistent disrespect, lack of humility. Nothing is impossible, I did it and I’m comfortable since then. Next is creating boundaries.
I learned automations using Zapier, wrote 10 blog posts. NO gym done (feel bad), and my biggest failure this year is I made 0 ARR dollars. While I had some issues with a scammer employer, I lost all the money that supposed to be my payroll and ended up slowing the process of building my logistics media company, Espace Logistique. With this result, team momentum went down and process follow-up went but I’m patiently and steadily getting back to the works.
Good things: personally speaking, I became a cat father this year, my sun and champion’s name’s Micho. I attended two summits, the first Growth Summit by Demand Curve and the second is Community Business Summit by Business of Community, led by Tatiana.
I do want to share other highlights that went good, like ensuring a $7.5K pre-seed for my newest e-commerce startup for frankincense and luxury ouds. I also make a new friendship with Dar Dixon, the Hollywood actor. He’s a sweet person.
The story is one line: we (me and my brother) launched Areej Fragrance.
A new vision to innovate thousands of years into the frankincense.
I spent 3 hours crafting the pitch deck to sent to the investor after a 1 hour mindset call.
