2012 To-Do’s

It’s that time of the year where you reflect on the current year and how you’ll improve yourself for the up-coming year.  Definitely make them positives.  I do believe that if you make a habit out of things, it does become a part of your nature, or your “lifestyle” because it becomes a way of life.  I really need to make time for things again.  I would say that this year I got very lazy and complacent and I want to change that.  Time for a Re-Up.

So here are a few things I hope to accomplish in 2012:

  • I dare myself to put at least 100 miles on my bike a month
  • Taking more pictures again and may put out a photo set once a month
  • Take time out to learn/study.  Keep my brain stimulated.
  • Eat better.  But everything tastes better with a fried egg on top.  And donuts.
  • Get out of the work schedule rut.  I let it overtake me.  I want my freedom back.
  • See my loved ones more. This holiday break made me realize how much I miss them.
  • Open my travel chapter up again.
  • Keep PedalHouston alive and kicking.  I love what it’s done and the community it’s created.
  • Stop spending.  More saving.  My budgeting went haywire last year somehow.
  • Get a dog.

I wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year.  It’s just like any other day but this is our societal excuse to give ourselves a fresh start at something.  To feel like we are given a clean slate to move forward.  I’ve learned a lot this year and I hope to work harder and not slack on what I want to achieve.  I’m happy to have a great family and good friends to keep me sane.  To think, it’s 2012.  I thought we would be living like the Jetsons by this time.  Time goes by fast as hell.  Go do something.
