I’m not one to make New Year’s Resolutions; I believe we need to constantly set goals and change ourselves from within all throughout our lives. That dogma nothwithstanding, there *are* a few things I would like to see happen in my life this coming year:
a) Hit 190 lbs. I went on a health kick in 2006 and it has yielded beautiful fruit. I would like to put myself into 2nd gear and hit 190 lbs with a BMI (body mass index) of 13%.
b) Buy a new laptop. The one I have currently is a HOSS (RAID controller; 4GB RAM, 17 inch screen…) but I need something that weighs less than 10 lbs (!)
c) Be nicer. This is one of those internal changes that will require effort each and every day for the rest of my life and probably can’t be measured except externally. By "nicer" I mean *less* mean, *less* sarcastic, *less* condescending, etc Yell less, speak softer more.
d) Be smarter. Another of those almost intangibles. I’m not necessarily talking about getting an advanced degree (no time) but I could read a good book or two (or three). I’ve decided to read one fiction, one non-fiction, and one political (right-leaning of course).
e) The last (but no means least): Be more spiritual. Let the reader decide what I mean by that.
5 goals, 365 days. IT’S ON!!
