Resolutions for 2014

January 1st, 2014 · 1 Comment

2013 was a year of stasis in good, neutral, and bad ways. For whatever it’s worth, I’m aiming a little higher for the next arbitrarily-delimited trip around a minor star halfway out from the center of the Milky Way.

  1. Create more undistracted time with the girls by stowing my iPhone when I get home each day.

  2. Ride my bikes at least 2,019 miles (the shortest distance across Antarctica via the South Pole).
    Bonus goal: ride one century each month.

  3. Make three things every day: a good photograph (probably of the random stuff I see going to and from work or riding my bike), a blog post (probably on quotidian topics, but occasionally on something more significant), and a decent drawing (inspired when needed by this list of prompts).

  4. Write that longish essay that I’ve had in my head for a while now, partly to find out if it’s any good, and partly to push myself to do some "real" writing.
    Bonus goal: publish this essay somehow, whether in a magazine or online.

  5. Finish all the books that are sitting, incompletely read, in The Stack.

The Stack

    But where will you find all the hours in the day?? These are all great goals but I’m overwhelmed by the time necessary to work full time, ride those miles, turn off the gadgetry and also use the gadgetry to produce all those good things. Do you sleep? If you pull this off, please share.
