welcome to 2006

i generally balk at new year's resolutions as a means of setting oneself up for disappointment. but goals are good for guidance. and after a rather awful 2005, perhaps a few goals will help make 2006 a better year. and what better pressure than making them public.

1. exercise at least three times per week (cliché as that may be)
2. straighten out the finances and bulk up the savings account
3. choose friends wisely and do a better job of maintaining those relationships
4. do more interesting things, socially – less going to the bar and more dinner parties, kayaking, cycling, bowling, stupid touristy stuff, volunteering, whatever
5. learn spanish and/or portuguese
6. make ‘sunshine’ more purposeful, meaning regular posts with min two, preferably three, activist-oriented reads per week
7. make meditation part of my routine; practice being constructively assertive (beyond the workplace); remember balance
8. don’t give up on making a positive impact on my corporate culture and business practices
9. learn to choose a decent bottle of wine
10. be, generally, more responsible: organization is a good thing; the dogs need regular exercise, too; bills must be paid on time; the car will last longer with better care


happy new year!

Here, here! It's better to phrase them as goals rather than resolutions :D

Happy New Year! I'm glad your gift finally arrived!
