It's not New Years yet and I don't do resolutions very well, I suck at them.I have a few things I'd like to better myself at and here's what they are:
1 ) Take Time to Learn. I have fallen in love with online tutorials and have almost set-up an account with Lynda.com. I want to learn more about what I love doing AND what I don't know enough about. I'm going to take more time in my week to learn the things I want to learn.
2 ) Get Healthy. Truth be told I eat WAY too much junk. I have also fallen in love with running, never thought that would happen, but I need to do it way more. Care to run with me? I'd also like to lose 20 pounds, check out this post at Ragamuffin Soul and that's pretty much me, I just don't feel like posting my belly to the world!
3 ) Patience. I have two amazing boys. They teach me a lot about patience, not necessarily with them but in life. I need to be more patient. I need to take time to just wait for things to develop and then jump in for the kill... ok that sounds odd, but I get it.
4 ) Network. I tell people networking is so important, but I don't think I do it enough myself. I want to network and build a tribe of people I am proud to be a part of. I have some things in place for me to start doing this more, but it needs to happen and it's on my plate to see that come true.
5 ) Create. I love creating things. It just has to happen more often. Videos, pictures, graphics, etc. more creating and not just for work. More creating just for the sake of enjoyment.
6 ) Drive. Some people say I'm really driven, I don't think I am. I can be more driven. I can set my mind on things and stick with it. Did you know that John Malkovich wanted to lose weight when he was sixteen that he ate jello for 2 months? I don't suggest that kind of diet, but I see it as a 56 day purge. 56 days to prove to myself how driven I am.
7 ) Intentional Time. Spend intentional time with the people who are most important to me. If I call you up over the next few weeks and you're like WHAT THE HECK? Well that's why. I'm trying to let you know I want to hang out with you because I think you're cool.
8 ) Market. I want to market the snot out of me and the channels I have available. So many people say no to marketing but they're missing incredible opportunities. I want to help people market their goals in life and see come true. I need to push that more and see it happen for people.
9 ) Read More. Right now I have a good blogroll I read through everyday, but paper and books have been lacking, huge! I have a couple really good books (I know they're good because I've started them and then put them down). This Christmas break I'll be reading and creating.
10 ) Free Time. My wife bugs me about not spending enough time to just relax. I'm going to listen to her. Starting right now. I'm going to go enjoy our Christmas decorated house and put my feet up and take in some Corner Gas.
What about you? What do you want to better in your life? Have you taken the time to think about it?
