Last year I did something different – I put my New Year resolutions up for everyone to see. Before we head off into the holidays, here is a little soul searching exercise from me to see if I have stayed on course or faltered.
Move the Blog to WP: CHECK. Heck, now I have 2 blogs!! This one is my personal blog and the one at www.Asfaq.com is the more serious type that talks of internet advertising from an Indian perspective.
Get back in shape: Yeah… well… I’ll reach my destination next year. Atleast I lost weight and feel lighter. Six-pack abs soon, mother promise.
Post Regularly: I realised pretty quickly that I didn’t want to get into the rat race of posting as soon as an update came in. I felt like a hamster running in a wheel – and I didn’t want that. I think this pace of updates is good.
Stop Procrastinating: CHECK.
Stop being Uncle Scrooge: CHECK CHECK!
Work Harder: CHECK.
Super-Secret Project: The @E71 and @AndroidTalk twitter ids happened, but they still weren’t the Super-Secret Project. The opportunity is lost now, and maybe I can help the others scale their project.
Get a Life: CHECK CHECK CHECK!!! Been partying too much this year. Now I know what ‘budgetary constrains’ means. I have made some really wonderful friends this year and had loads of fun with my old friends too. Thank you.
Write Poetry: Wrote a grand total of 2 poems in 365 days. Turns out they were so shitty, I didn’t write another poem again. Maybe I will write again, maybe I won’t… depends. No pressure this time because it just pisses me off then.
Re-learn Marathi: Need to get working on this.
Not too bad of a year, I’d say. There were some significant gains and misses, but things are so much better now that I can’t wait for next year. Stay tuned for my New Year resolutions for 2010.
Till then, here is wishing you and yours a very happy holidays 🙂
