2011 Resolutions (re-post, from January 2011)

Posted in : about life/the Christian faith,stream of consciousness/random

(Editor’s note on April 24, 2011, this is a re-post of my 2011 Resolutions that I made this past New Year’s. I don’t think I had ever really, officially, done these before in my life. For years now, I honestly make it a daily goal to meet goals–long and short-term–so I don’t often have a lot of things I’m “trying to work on”. But I do have some, and thought I’d officially post them. Sorry if this bored you–I just wanted a reminder)


2011 Resolutions

1 ) Love, and ALLOW myself to be loved, both

2 ) Plan less

3 ) Spend more money

4 ) Do NOTHING more often

5 ) Read less TEXTbooks

6 ) Read more REAL books

7 ) Talk to more strangers

8 ) Be more impulsive

9 ) Feel more

10 ) Care less


With these, I really tried not to include “check-points” or business-related benchmarks or anything. Like, I didn’t want to say stuff like

Have such-and-such many clients in my web-design company“, or

Decide on career“, or

Complete that-and-that type of marketing“, or

Complete this personal project” type of things.


I didn’t want to post those here…otherwise those’d take up all 10 slots 😛 .


As always–comment even if you weren’t tagged, it’s fine.

Daniel Wilkinson Well, first he had to plan to plan to plan less before he could plan to plan less. Now that he’s done with that, I expect that he’s planning less…

1) I love you, Trav.

B.j. Watts ‎”Man! I don told you to stop workin so dang much”— words to my father. He has calmed down a bit since then. I think he finally gave in to my advice. Planning less? Your body & mind will thank you for it.
