New Year's Resolutions

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to write more. So I figured a good way to start was to write out my New Year's resolutions and, in the process, keep this here blog more up to date. So here they are, in no particular order:

1- Write more
Put more of my thoughts onto documents and blogs, for no other purpose than to seek attention. Deal with it.

2- Learn HTML, XHTML & CSS
I deal with websites way too much not to know what the hell is going on. I bought a "For Dummies" book on it, which I figured is a good start.

3- Publish a book
Ok, or an article, a novel, a novella, a word. The important word here is publish, as in, have someone else decide to put something I wrote somewhere public.

4- Learn to cook at least 5 dishes well
It's about time I did.

5- Have a business be profitable and self-sustaining
I'm looking at Ticino Wedding or Dumbagent. By profitable and self- sustaining I mean that I can step back from the day-to-day process.

6- Enter at least 1 contest per month
Any contest or competition that gives a prize I like or offers recognition.

7- Multi-task less
I need to. I think everyone should. As Tony Hsieh put it: Multi-tasking is Multi-Stupid.

8- Take more pictures
I gots me a nifty new camera, I need to learn to use it well.
