Recently I lamented the somewhat sudden death of this blog.
I did this as I lamented my poor performance on the goals that I had set for myself on this blog. Its no secret that my poor performance posting on this platform, designed for public accountability, accompanied poor follow through on the goals I wanted to achieve.
Timing is huge for all sorts of things – finances, relationships, careers, etc -, so lucky me that these lamentations come right around New Year’s Resolution time.
I’ve never really developed a list of resolutions before – or at least not that I intimately recall. This year I’ll be changing that.
I’m afraid that I’ll have too many things on the list, but I’m not going to dull down my ambitions because of that. I won’t subscribe to the Homer Simpson notion that “trying is the first step towards failure”.
So, while the list may end up huge, I am going to make a list of things to achieve in the new year and it will surely be long. After Christmas passes I’ll revisit my original blog post discussing why I started this thing to begin with, and then add my new list to it (minus some of the more personal items I don’t or can’t share with a mass audience). Anonymity can make accountability hard, but the desire for personal excellence ought to be enough to make me forge ahead.
So, off we go in the end of this year and the beginning of a new life. I hope you’ll join (or stick around if you’ve been here before) the ride.
