2012 Resolution Details:

Life Journal Daily – You can see my thoughts on this here

Tumblr/blog often – See Above

De-clutter (closets, clothes, house) and keep them that way – Frankly, I have way too much stuff and don’t need or use half of it.  I’d rather have less quantity and more quality. It will also help us get more organized. It may be me but I always feel better when i’m more organized.

Finish my mancarage (Man cave + Garage) – I want to get this one checked off by spring. We started late last year and did a lot to clean and paint but still need to de-clutter this and get better organized before I can epoxy the floor, install the projector and setup the awesomeness

Start Yoga classes w/ the wife – This is something we’ve talked about for awhile but haven’t followed through with yet. I’m pretty sure it will help my body loosen up and recover from all the activities and sports as well.  

Read More – I’m positive this was on my list last year and I think I did a pretty good job but I think I can do better. Reading = get smarter, getting smarter = better at Words with Friends! 🙂

Learn more about my family – Particularly my Dad and Mom because they both have excellent stories that I’d hate to miss out on. Every time I hang out with my Dad for an extended period of time I find out some of the wildest stories and I’m sure there are more.

Get my domain portfolio in order – I have A LOT of domain names and I either need to get them online, sold or removed from my portfolio.  It is a huge project and I’ve been putting it off for a too long.

Spend money smarter or not at all – This goes along with the general theme of these resolutions. Less is More. Quality over Quantity. Get Organized.

Finish WUR and PR (another project) – These are my 2 largest potential projects and I’ve had them lingering for far too long. When I get them completed and operational I think it will free me up to do other projects that interest me

Plan a big 2013 vacation (China?, Asia?, So. America?) – We were thinking about taking a big trip this spring break but I don’t think it is a good idea to hurry it, so next year it is. Also I want to make sure the wife and I vacation more this year. There is so much to see and explore.

No more soda (unless its in a mixed drink 🙂 ) / More water – I don’t drink that much soda as it is, but I really feel any is too much.  It doesn’t add anything to my body (other than lbs) and I can really tell a difference in how I feel when I go long periods of time w/o soda (longest is 2.5 years) and it is definitely better and everyone needs more water.

Get organized – This is the general theme in our house and I think we will both push to get our life more organized & efficient.

Do more to help my wife with her goals and projects  – This is the most important one to me.  My wife wants to do more with herself and I want to make sure I do everything I can to help her whether it is job, school, DIY, fun, or health related, the more productive she feels the happier she’ll be and that is always my #1 priority. 

So let’s get it on 2012, let’s see what you’ve got!
