I've been thinking in my mind of some professional goals that I would like to accomplish in 2013 in no certain order.
-Find a place to postdoc
-Get permission to write my dissertation
-Write the tome of irrelevance that no one will read but me and maybe the person who takes over my project
-Defend said dissertation
-Need to purchase body armor and padding for use in the defense to limit damage absorbed from committee
-Publish last paper (or two) from PhD work
-Learn new stuff
-Maybe write for some type of fellowship
What are some professional goals that you folks have in the coming year? And best of luck to you on them.
