Why Not Be Cliche

Everybody makes a list, why should I be any different.  I think you are supposed to do resolutions before the New Year starts, but with the Pats game, I just didn’t get to it.  I am going to do this a little differently.  First off, 2012 is the year I turn 40, so that is a more remarkable target date than the end of the year.   July also makes a nice mid-point because waiting a whole year to evaluate your goals is just too long.  Joe refers to them as “goals” and not “resolutions” and I agree.  Normally I would like to do some sort of quarterly review, but that is too short a time frame to make meaningful progress.  So right before my b-day, I will take stock of what I have done and figure the rest of the year.  Here is the list

  • Post 26 times, add comment to form auto-biography
  • Start tailgate site as coding test case, use squarespace
