I don't know what.
That's how I began my post on 1/1/2009, three years ago. Of course I had a lot to resolve and I made some progress. But nothing that I put on my list had a specific end-date. I'll include all the same things this year--it doesn't mean I didn't do anything with them the last three years; it simply illustrates how important these things are to me. I could add to the list, but I like to take this once a year opportunity to remind myself of what's really important in life, to regain my perspective. I could add some professional goals, I suppose, but I won't (go back and read the previous sentence). So for 2012, I resolve to:
- Focus on my health, get my annual physical early in the year, lose a few pounds, exercise regularly
- Be a good husband, do what I can to keep the pressure (I won't go into detail here, but the "pressures" are real and many) off my wife, remind her often that I love her
- Be a good father, set the right example in all that I do, work to stay involved in my son's life, even as his world expands;
- If there's any time left, write more, sell some books;
