8760 Hours: How to get the most out of next year
"A goal without a plan is just a wish" and so if we wish to maximize our positive impact in the world, developing an annual plan to help us reach and stay accountable for our altruistic, personnel, and professional goals is a great thing to do. But how should we go about making such a plan?

In this interactive workshop, Quinn McHugh from EA Philly will discuss strategies for reflecting on the past year, identifying and prioritizing goals for the upcoming year, and ensuring our goals are met through the use of various tools and techniques.

By the end of the workshop, you will have:
* Begun assessing your life's various "buckets" and get clear on what went well or poorly in the previous year.
* Begun identifying what your "ideal" upcoming year might look like and the various priorities you'd like to focus on.
* Learned how to not just SET goals, but ensure they're actually carried out, utilizing various strategies to optimize our chances of success.

This workshop is largely based on content from Alex Vermeer's "8760 Hours" annual planning guide, which can be referenced here:
