2012 Goals

I hate the phrase “resolutions” because it implies the need for resolve to do things. Plus I hate what other people like. There, I said it.

First, how did I do on 2011?

  1. Get back into tennis. I haven’t played since high school and I’m in a lot better shape now than I was then. I did not do this.
  2. Maintain my work/computer/life balance properly, especially time with Eli and Amy. I did this more for the fact that I wasn’t working for 8 months than anything.
  3. Be a nicer person Debatable.
  4. Now that we know Eli can travel, we should do so! We went to Maui, San Francisco and New York, so CHECK.
  5. See more concerts Not really, but it is now a job requirement.
  6. Run another marathon A half?
  7. Make an iPhone app and a web app Web app: check. iPhone? Not yet.
  8. Organize life and keep it organized Still in progress
  9. Learn something new NOT involving computers, programming languages, etc Nope.
  10. Organize photos (both digital and analog), scan the analog in, make books Yes
Here are my ten goals for 2012:
  1. Go paperless. Anytime paper comes into the house or into my life, it’ll be scanned (or photographed) and shredded.
  2. Maintain work/life balance now that I’m working
  3. Run a marathon, a half marathon and a relay
  4. Pick up (somehow) a non-running sport.
  5. Finish our house (decoration and yard)
  6. Take Eli out of the country
  7. Continue working on my patience and ability to be “nice,” or as Amy would say: stop being so fucking grumpy all the time
  8. Adopt and maintain a system for dealing with information and task processing
  9. Try to keep one date-night a week with Amy. We’re often too busy to even think about it.
  10. See more movies in theaters, more music in venues, more everything culture related.
