Making promises are a good thing, especially ones made to yourself. Following through with them is harder. But here’s a motivator: making them public. What better motivator is there than that? In 2013, I vow to…
- Blog every day. Have you noticed? I haven’t missed a day since the blog opened in September. It’s taken a lot of discipline, but it has been good. I commit to carry this resolution till at least September 1 when I started blogging. I’ll reassess then.
- Publish every month. I’ve got so much content flowing from my fingers that I should be able to go to press with something every month. My Sweet Home Office Suite is January’s. Expect at least 12 publications authored by me in 2013.
- Budget daily. In other words, stay up to snuff on my finances. When I let my books go, I never really know how much or how little money I have, and I inevitably make poor business decisions. Not in 2013.
- Friend a troll. I like posting challenging ideas, and trolls like to fish around when I do. Last year I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with someone out east during the election season, and I’d like to do more of it in a non-election season. Note to trolls, though: anonymous posts are cowardice, and you get deleted when you’re just plain mean. “Befreind the mean in 2013.” I like that.
- Lose 10 more pounds. I lost 20 since last New Years Day, but I could lose 10 more. Having my dear wife on my side, I have no excuse (she wrote Love in a Diet). Besides, I’ve got the killer diet that always works: eat healthy and lean. Hey, I like the sound of that. “Healthy and Lean in 2013.” Ooo, I’m on a roll.
So here’s to a good 2013! May your resolutions be as honest and rewarding as mine. If you’d like to go public, there’s always the comment section below.
