About Me

Hey! I’m Mica, the little person behind Go for the Goals. I’m not really fond of using labels; let’s just say I’m a lot of things. I’m a fitness enthusiast, a newbie digital marketer, a freelancer, a language geek, and a life nerd.

Know the Story

In 2016, my boyfriend and I were talking about side hustles. I was thinking of selling things online, and he suggested blogging. He told me that I should do something that I enjoy… which is writing.

I still didn’t know what niche to go with back then: should I write about my passion for linguistics? If I did, my side hustle would be similar to my main job. Or maybe I should write about my other passion which is health and fitness?

Nothing happened until three years later… In 2019, I decided to build my blog. I thought I should’ve started right when we talked about it, but it’s okay. No regrets there. As they say…

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Chinese Proverb

I started my now-defunct blog, micalisthenics.com. The word calisthenics may be a giveaway, it’s about health and fitness. I decided to write about my fitness journey, but the enthusiasm for writing about fitness waned.

It felt repetitive. I’m a fitness enthusiast, and I didn’t know what to write about…even if I listed 50 possible blog topics before I got started. So, I stopped.

I changed directions and started Go for the Goals.

What’s Go for the Goals?

Go for the Goals is the place where I write down my journey as I try to achieve different goals in life–from doing my first pullup to building my emergency fund.

But just because it’s my journey doesn’t mean it’s all about me, myself, and I.

This blog is created for goal getters like you! I’m writing my journey to inspire people who are on the same path.

Striking a Balance

Sometimes focusing too much on our goals cause us to lose balance in life. You can expect to read content that will help you grow in different areas of life: health, wealth, relationships, intellect, and mindset.

It’s about setting goals in one area that’s aligned with the other areas. What’s the use of reaching the maximum potential of one area, if the others are suffering? You may be rich, but your health is failing. You may be smart, but people don’t like you. The goal of this blog is to inspire others to implement balance in life while trying to reach their goals.
