New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions: Everybody else is doing it, so why can’t I?

Last year I made the bold resolution to blog at least once a day (and trackback and comment more often) and I think I passed with flying colors. For 2005, I posted 601 times in 365 days, so I got that going for me, which is nice.

So, even though I have very little resolve today, I will try to be resolute in my devotion to the following ideals in 2006:

  1. Blogging even more often
    Hey, if I keep the whole auto-post of links feature going, I’ve already bought myself about 250 posts.
  2. Oatmeal and excercising more consistently
    I don’t want to put a number on it (my weight loss or my gym attendance), but if I can focus on me like I focus on the blog, I’ll be golden.
  3. Beer
    Drink more and brew more. I gotta have one “gimme” resolution.
  4. Family time
    Find more things to do (games, bike riding, nothing) with the family both altogether and with just Jenn or just Raelyn. Really another “gimme” but I want to have it written down
  5. “Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
    Via Tom Peters, I’m going to try and apply this anectdote to my career. I’m looking for a breakout year in 2006. Something to do with videoblogging, a potential promotion and a play at something much bigger than what I currently have. Stay tuned to this space for accident reports and celebratory shouting.

That’s all I’ve got. Hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year.

Auld Lang Syne and drink a flute of champagne for me!
