New Year’s Resolutions 2011

December 31st, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This year, the name of the game is: finish stuff. If I had to roll all of my goals into one resolution, it would be to keep focused on one project at a time (okay, at least a very small number of  projects) and see it through to completion before moving on to a new project.

So, with no further ado, here are the projects I’m looking to work on — and complete — in the coming year:

  1. Learn Spanish: Dore and I have always wanted to learn another language, and Spanish will be very useful for both of us.  So we are both resolving to really learn Spanish this next year.
  2. Learn salsa dancing: This one should be pretty simple.  Dore has us all signed up already.
  3. Visit the Caribbean: Notice a pattern? 🙂  Dore made me promise that our next vacation would be somewhere tropical.  Something about our last two blizzard-filled ski trips, I think…  So anyway, to the tropics it is.  Anyone have cool suggestions of off-the-beaten-track locales to scope out?  (And no, Ian, the Lesser Antilles don’t count just because they have “Lesser” in the name.)
  4. Complete a proof of concept of a web application I’ve been thinking about for a while: More details to come…
  5. Complete my second novel, Virus: I got a strong start last year, but fizzled when various other things came up.
  6. Complete a photo book project: I’ve been working on collecting photos for an artistic book for a while.  We’ll see if anything materializes in the next year.  I don’t quite have enough shots yet.

Well, that’s the list for now.  I’ll add a follow up if I think of anything else.  For now, it’s off to pack for our flight back home tomorrow morning and a good night’s sleep.

Happy New Year, everyone!
