It’s the beginning of a new year; a chance to start fresh. All of the bad habits from last year can stay in the past. Whatever. There’s actually only been one year in my entire life that I actually followed through with all of my resolutions. My friend and I set some very specific, achievable goals and held each other accountable for them. At first I wasn’t even going to bother with any, I usually don’t, but as I thought about what I would want to achieve this year, I managed to come up with a few that I could deal with. So here they are, in no particulat order:
- Develop a thicker skin – I resolve not to let people get to me and make my life miserable, even (especially) the stupid people.
- 100 pushups – My wife and I have tried this program a couple of times, but some thing kills our momentum and we stop. Not this time, this time I resolve to trudge through the arms feeling like jelly phase and eventually reach 100.
- Second tattoo – I already have the designs of the next two chosen, I just have to get someone to draw the third one. I resolve to finally get my second tattoo.
That’s it for now. They’re nothing big, but they are very specific and definitely achievable.
