Ok, everyone’s doing it, so I should, too? Am I just a Lemming and going to follow everyone off a cliff? On the contrary, having resolutions for all to see will probably steer one away from going off a cliff. It may not be as eloquent or detailed as some of my fellow Yakezie bloggers, but it’s the first time I’m putting my resolutions down with pen to paper, so to speak, so give me a break. 🙂
Meet Yakezie Challenge: So close and yet so far, I can almost taste it! If I crack 200,000, I will continue on to 100,000.
Move: Efficiently, Safely, and Sanely (‘nuff said)
Use New Gym
My new apartment has a nice little gym with some pretty good equipment. Blogging has taken away some of my exercise time so I will need to get myself on track. Hopefully the new equipment will be incentive for me to get cracking on converting my one pack to a six pack! 🙂
Friends and Family
Make an effort to spend more time with old friends and family.
Utilize Facebook and Twitter more, grow my friends and followers to 100 each. Improve my RSS feed setup. Also look into other options like Digg and Reddit.
After my amazing European tour, I vowed to learn more French, Swiss-German, and Italian. It went nowhere fast. I hope to expand my meager vocabulary in the New Year.
Replenish and double my existing emergency fund. Learn about options and shorting, try to gain 25% in my existing short term portfolio. Make better use of deductions when doing my taxes.
Add a new recipe for chicken, beef, and pork to my cooking repertoire.
Take two or three mini vacations next year.
Reduce my BlackBerry (work) usage, but use my iPod touch (personal) more.
Read, write, and comment! Find, read, review, and recommend a book on how to improve your writing. Enter a blog carnival. Dust off some of my notes and try my hand at travel writing. Continue with MWF posting schedules, but look into weekly themes to provide more value to readers. Find and implement a new logo.
Good Luck with all your resolutions and Happy New Year! 🙂
