2012

Not huge on “year end” or “goal” posts.. or is that goalposts? but last year I did a 2011 and Beyond post, so I figured I would do one this year. Of course it is 2 days late, as I was on the road and kind of disconnected from Dec 23rd until Jan 1st. But here goes.

First…How did I do from last year .. I did some of the things, tried to do some of the things, and failed at some of things, expected.

This year? Well..

  • Spend more time with Emily and Ella
  • Lose weight! Failed at this. I used Fitbit (that is another post) and I want to try to do 10k steps a day this year
  • Brew at least 1 batch of beer a month (And try a Secondary, and our own recipe)
  • Utilize social networks and sites more.
  • Learn to cook (tried last year but the class was cancelled?!?)
  • Complete a few awesome projects at work
  • Hit 1000 blog posts (should be easy, I’m at 991 right now)
  • Hit 3+ conferences and network like crazy
  • Keep adding value to MADPASS
  • Get home to Pierz and Chisholm 3+ times
  • Buy a house
  • Get rid of Windows in my house

And there is so much more. So much to do, it never ends. But we can try, and still have fun. To everyone, have a great year and do things you want to do and have fun doing it!

1st Quarter Goal Update – 2011

Holding myself accountable here..

where are we at from the Jan 1st goal list?

  • Blog More – have been trying to! Could do more here. (14 in March, 2 in Feb, 3 in Jan)
  • Complain Less – same here.
  • Lose Weight – down 10 lbs, was down 15, want to keep going.
  • Spend more Time with Ella and Emily – been trying to do this, need to do more
  • Learn to Cook (more) – signed up for a class through MATC was supposed to be in March, was cancelled, going to have to look into this one more..
  • Develop a cool application/site/thing and ship it – got a wp7, now just need to “build” something
  • Drink less coffee, and beer – failing at this one 🙂
  • Purge things I don’t use – spring cleaning is coming up, sold stuff on ebay too.
  • Organize things physical and digital – need help on this one, or time
  • Consolidate Services I use – working on it
  • Take more pictures – failing at this one
  • Ride my bike more, maybe start running again – did some running in Jan/Feb (lost weight remember) but have been slacking. Bike riding season is right around the corner.
  • Go camping often – camping season is coming up, hopefully will get out more.

2011 and Beyond..

As 2010 comes to a close, and everyone is blogging and tweeting their goals and what’s up next for 2011, I figured I would get some out there, as well as make sure I get at least one post in December this year, I have been slacking.

  • Blog More
  • Complain Less
  • Lose Weight
  • Spend more Time with Ella and Emily
  • Learn to Cook (more)
  • Develop a cool application/site/thing and ship it
  • Drink less coffee, and beer
  • Purge things I don’t use
  • Organize things physical and digital
  • Consolidate Services I use
  • Take more pictures
  • Ride my bike more, maybe start running again
  • Go camping often

probably could keep going. Some are quantifiable, some are more broad. Just a small list on things to look at and try to do. When we come back in a year I can look back at this list and see what I did and didn’t do.
