You ought to get your core Java skill set to a certain level first before attempting enterprise Java (Java EE) stuff.

Generics and collections, regex, I/O, NIO are some topics you should be familiar with in the core Java space.

Persistence like JDBC, Hibernate and JPA are also topics you should be familiar with. These can be learned with out Java EE.

As for enterprise Java always start with servlets and JSP. Web frameworks (JSF, spring, struts etc), web services (REST and SOAP) and EJB can come later.

If you want to learn design patterns, start with the gang of four patterns.

Are these goals SMART ?
- Specific
- Measurable
- Action related
- Realistic
- Time bound

I can see a plan for a whole lot of broad stuff you want to learn - maybe too broad and too much
How can you tell if you have learned it or not at the end?
I don't see anything for what you are going to DO with it.
And honestly I think there is an awful lot there - you're not being realistic about the amount you can learn properly.

My suggestion would be to refine these goals, so that you have something at the end of it.

So for January and February maybe something like:
Make at least one in depth article post to the blog during February on the subject of using using Lambda expressions in a Spring environment.
Write at least one custom annotation to help streamline your programming
