It’s taken me a few days to get to this, but here it is. Instead of making a bunch of resolutions I’m going to try to give my year two foci. These are areas of personal development that I’m driving forward. I think this is a more strategic way to handle my projects for the year and it’ll be more productive than making a bunch of vague resolutions. I got this from Steve Pavlina’s 2010 Focus post…be sure to spend a few minutes checking out what he said.
I’m doing one regular resolution-type project right off the bat: I’m going vegetarian and no-alcohol for the month of January as part of a larger fitness plan. Basically, I want to get really jacked this winter and cleaning up my diet is a big key. I did the vegetarian thing for 1 month last year and had so-so results, so I thought I’d take another crack. Incidentally, I thought it was way easier to cut out booze than it was to cut out meat, mostly because when I dine out the options are much more limited. I also have this problem where I don’t grocery shop well and I don’t set enough time to plan and prepare meals, which makes eating creative vege dishes tough. So we’ll see how it guys.
My Two Areas of Personal Development for 2010
Besides that, I’m going to focus on two areas of development:
1. Develop and implement an Internet Marketing strategy for the purpose of establishing passive revenue streams. I currently work for a startup so I want to add extra streams in case something happens to me or my company. Besides that, I want to start setting myself up for self-employment in the not-too-distant future. This will require a fair amount of education and a shitload of work on my part, but I’ve got the technical foundation to do it. Part of the process will simply be getting my hands on all the knowledge I can on the subject and then start doing stuff. By the end of the year I should have it down pretty good. Part of this strategy also includes marketing this blog better and getting it to pay for itself at the very least.
I dropped one of my part-time jobs recently (coaching) and I actually have a little more time per week than I did last year, which will go a long way towards getting this done. If anyone wants to help me become a successful Internet Marketer, feel free to email me at lance [at] honeyandlance [dot] com.
2. #2 is to move towards relationship mastery. Okay, it’s a little over-the-top to suggest that I (or anyone) can master relationships in a year, or any amount of time really, but I want to get much better at this than I currently am. I don’t have a specific goal of acquiring a girlfriend or dating X number of chicks, but I wouldn’t mind getting involved with a really rad chick this year. I had a couple of girlfriends in 2009 and those were mostly unsatisfactory…albeit highly educational. I can step this thing up and do better.
So that’s it. Those are high level goals, from which I’ll develop a strategy and map out how it’s gonna happen. I’ll be blogging about it, for sure. What are your goals and resolutions for 2010? Let’s hear it in comments.
