As 2011 passes wearily away, and Auld Lang Syne fades into the chimes from Big Ben, my thoughts turn to what I will endeavour to do differently in 2012.
- Use technology smartly: I collect far too much paper in my study, hoarding statements and documents that I might need one day. I can scan the documents and store them online, available from anywhere, and get rid of the dead trees making my workspace look untidy.
- Use my mind and provoke thought: I will try to blog two or three times a week. I don’t know whether I’ll write about current events, my latest peeves, or something altogether more highbrow.
- Continue my search for the fitter me: I think it will be a lifetime of search, but I will aim to
- enter (and finish) a 10k race
- improve my cardiovascular fitness by running or playing racquet sports three times a week
- improve my musculoskeletal fitness by training with Amy
- lose weight
Should this list be longer, mention something inspiring (like solving world peace and famine), or set outrageous expectations (such as climbing Everest)? Nope, lets stick to what I want to do to make a change.
So, what are your resolutions?
