Update: I started to write this post on the 31st, but the good thing is since Jan 1st I’ve been keeping my goals. Only four days so far, but its a good start.
I can’t believe that 2009 has gone by so quickly. Its been a blast of a year. My last post was a little recap of it, but I’m hoping to make the best of 2010.
I’ve been thinking of a few things I want to accomplish in 2010, and here is a quick list of some of them. I’ll blog at a later date in more detail on exactly how I’m planning on accomplishing this.
- First off, get into shape! Being a web developer is a pretty stationary job. Especially on days where I work from home. My first goal is to work out 4 days a week before I start my day. So the plan is to wake up, work out for 30-40 minutes, and then get ready for the day. Also, by no means, what-so-ever, am I allowed to check my email first. If I check my email first, I end up getting sucked into my work day. 😛
- Second, I’m going to give up Coke / Pepsi for the entire year. Those who know me, that is a tall order. However, I figure if I want to get in shape, those drinks have tons of empty calories I could do without. There is one hitch: what happens when I get that phone call at 2 AM that there is an IT emergency? It happens several times a year unfortunately. So I’m planning on drinking Diet Mountain Dew when that happens. Its not my favorite, which is good, because I don’t want to be downing insane amounts of aspartame or splenda.
- Third, increase my productivity & organization. Looking back these last few years, I feel like I have done pretty well and becoming more and more organized. I feel like I’m pretty efficient when it comes to programming, but as always there is room for improvement. I forget things every now and then, and things fall through the crack. This year I want to tighten the screws & get more stuff done.
- Fourth, blog my discoveries. I want to keep my blog up to date with my latest endeavors and solutions that I’ve found. Hopefully I can get into the habit.
Over the next few weeks, I hope to go into more details on the goals I’ve outlined. I have several other personal goals, but these are the ones I plan on focusing on now. We’ll see how this go.
