Like every year I am going to post my goals for 2009. These are not resolutions, but rather goals. What's the difference you may ask? Well if it's a resolution, it is easier to fail or quit on. For example, if the resolution is to stop drinking coke, if you have a coke, then you failed, and may think about giving up on the resolution entirely. If it is a goal, having that coke is a "slip" and you can get back to the plan the next day. So.... I am working on Goals for 2009.
On the way home from my parents house, I was talking with my wife, and we figured it was going to be a pretty big year for us, so my goals are going to be more modest in scope this year. We plan on having a lot going on so...
- Lose weight
This is a carry-over from last year. I need to get down to 165-170. I should get there, but again...who knows. This one is starting to get important though, the longer I keep the weight on, the harder it is going to be to get rid of it.
- Stop Drinking Coke / SODA
Again a carry-over from last year. This one is hard for me; I just need to do it.
- Add 52 posts to Itowler.com
Yeah, Yeah, how many times have we heard this one.... I did do better last year, so maybe I can get closer this year.
- Get the Family Tree up to 2200 people
Last year I set the goal really high, and wanted to more than double the size of the tree, but that was just not a good idea. As I have been doing this longer, I really am trying to document my sources, and that makes adding new people a longer process. This time I only need to add 418 people to reach my goal. A little more than 1 person a day. Much more manageable.
- Get a "logo" for itowler.com
As I am writing this, in the upper left hand corner of the site, is just a big ugly white text blob that says "itowler.com". I want a more graphical display there. Not sure how I am going to accomplish this, but hey that is why it is a goal.
- Get the Blogs Sorted
I want to be able to have the blog posting be sorted by date, I know that Drupal can do this; I just have not taken the time to figure it out.
So there are my goals for 2009, let's see what I can get done!
Happy New Year!
