Why I’m Not Making Resolutions This Year

happy new year!There are a lot of things I want to accomplish this year.

I want to . . .

  • be more creative
  • DJ all sorts of events (weddings, rap concerts, dances, etc)
  • get my fiction published
  • produce quality radio
  • build a life with the woman I love
  • find a way to support myself financially
  • find a job that not only pays the bills but makes me happy
  • sharpen my DJ skills
  • make a few mixtapes to highlight my DJ skills
  • run more than 300 kilometers
  • write a new work of fiction
  • write a non-fiction book (I have two great ideas for this too)
  • keep this blog regularly updated
  • read for enjoyment, self-improvement, and personal education

That is quite the extensive list of things I’d like to accomplish in one year.

I can resolve to do all of these right now, but what good would that do? I’ve tried to get a few of these things done for years now and haven’t been successful.

The good news is that overall, I’ve had a lot of success since starting this blog. I’ve done things I hadn’t initially set out to do and they have been amazing.

So I am not setting any resolutions this year. Instead, I will look at this list of goals at the start of every month. I will break down each point in detail and set out a monthly goal for myself. I will share that goal with my girlfriend and a few close friends. I might even blog about the process. I will write down my monthly goal and track it.

This way, I hope to have a very productive 2016. I hope you will too!
