It’s January, which means you’re supposed to put forth your ‘new year resolutions’. Typically, these are silly, non-SMART goals like ‘eat healthier’, ‘be better’, and junk like that. This year, I only have two main goals or resolutions.
1. Read 1 book per month – I had this goal last year, and only ended up reading about 4 books. However, I immediately saw value in this, and reading is something that I used to do when I was younger, and something that I want to teach my daughter as a priority as she grows up. To set aside time for this, I actually setup a recurring ‘meeting’ at work during lunchtime, and reserved myself a conference room that’s somewhat hidden and not used often. This gives me 1 hour, uninterrupted, nearly every day, to read. I’ve already got a couple of books on my list, but I definitely invite you to leave any recommendations in the comments below.
2. Blog twice a week – I also had this goal last year, and only managed to publish 21 posts, which is shameful. I just recently finished going through my RSS feeds to publish a ‘Trimming In Public’ series, and will be publishing thoughts on more gadgets. We’re also expecting our 2nd child this summer, so there might be some fatherhood-related posts sprinkled in there, as well.
That’s it. Those are my primary goals, at least that I’ll be publishing here.
