Bring on 2009
It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I’ve made my resolutions for 2009. Among other things I pledged to become more serious about learning Spanish, keep on training sanjuro, travel to see another (probably awesome) country and impress myself with new kiteboarding tricks yet to be learned. So if you see me skipping my Spanish or sanjuro class please do apply some good old peer pressure. This is what friends are for.
There are a few other more personal resolutions that I didn’t want to make public, relating to (storm-ridden) finances or private life. I guess I just don’t need the extra kick of motivation for these ones.
Wasn’t 2008 awesome!
So much to look back at and smile. And there are quite a few resolutions I managed to keep : Pledgehammer is up and running, I managed to attend as many sanjuro trainings as I intended and I travelled enough for my liking. Then there’s the slightly weird resolution about my private life where I either wanted one thing or the other but I sort of achieved both. But I did fail several resolutions, some for good and some to be reached in years to come.
As you may have already guessed by now I like to set goals for myself, and not just on New Year’s Eve. If you don’t know where you’re going you may not get there, as the old saying goes. If you haven’t done so yet, I warmly recommend sit down and ask yourself what you do want to get from 2009? And what do you want to give to 2009, or the people you care about. I of course recommend to write it down on this great site for making resolutions (sorry, just had to link one more time) but you can also share it in your mood message, blog or a bumper sticker on your car for that matter.
Talking of which, it’s great that Pledgehammer has gotten some nice coverage and that there are now more other people’s resolutions on the site than mine. If it becomes useful to a few people and helps a few charities get more donations, that’s another one of my resolutions for 2009 done right there.
So bring on 2009 and a happy new year to you all!
