2017 Year in Review

If there's one lesson learned, it's focus. In 2018 I'm going to limit the scope and number of resolutions.


A healthy body is a must for me. In 2015 I improved my sleep and lost weight, and in 2017 I became stronger and more mobile.

  • Increase strenght by increasing my 5 rep max - Deadlift 110kg, front squat 80kg, push press 60kg, bench press 90kg, 10 pull-ups.
  • Increase mobility - Gymnastics Body Intermediate Level. Update: slow progress, not as good as I hoped for but I didn't put in the work.


Work is a big part of my life, but I'm constantly reminding myself that it's not the only one.

  • Start a company or get a new job Update: I quite my job, and started freelancing.
  • Start a side project. Minimize Email, eCommerceDaily, Diversity List, Black Friday Tech.
  • Code every week. Update: I suck at this, but I did build more stuff, specially towards the end of the year. Launching is a muscle that needs to be exercised.


A healthy mind is as important as a healthy body. In 2016, I successfully got myself into stoicism. 2017 was about travel and communication.

  • Travel to 10 new countries. Update: Japan, Czech Republic, Denmark, Belgium, Malta, Portugal, Finland, Estonia. I got super close, but for multiple personal reasons, I couldn't make it. It was a fun though.
  • Become conversational in italian. Update: L'italiano è un idioma bellisimo 🇮🇹 I'm focusing on french now.
