Hola 2k10, Au revoir 2k9.Posted: January 1, 2010
(Note: This was posted 12/31/09, I need to adjust the time setting!)
Presents are (always) great, but nothing ever beat that anticipation of going trying sleep on Christmas Eve. As I’ve gotten older that anticipation dulled. But never for New Years Eve.
I have that childish sense of anticipation now. There is something new right around the corner; 2010, new and unknown.
Like a lot of people I paused this week and took stock of 2009. What did I do right? What did I do wrong? What could I have done better?
Hindsight is 20/20. And life seems a lot clearer now that you’ve made it over all the bumps (for the year anyways).
Resolutions came to mind, but I decided against them. I have goals. Substantive goals for this year and life, until I drop. I ‘d rather just show you what I can accomplish, though. Also, this post by Derek Sivers dissuaded me from wanting to share.
The just of the post is this quote:
Announcing your plans to others satisfies your self-identity just enough that you’re less motivated to do the hard work needed.
So, I promise in 2010, as I knock through (or am close to knocking through) my goals, I’ll share them here.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
P.s. My song for 2010 (currently) is Drown In the Now by The Crystal Method ft. Matisyahu. I defy you not to get pumped!
