2014 is gone, and I was relieved to see it go. While I may have said “good riddance,” I managed not to shout “get the F&!* out of here,” and I’m pretty proud of that self-restraint.
I don’t want to curse the new year already, but it’s got to be better. That said, I have to be part of making it better. I’ve done resolutions in the past — with positive results, even. But this year, I want something different, more action-oriented. Progress I can track, because even though I’m a word nerd, I love being able to calculate my progress as a percentage (and maybe even a fancy spreadsheet with graphs and pie charts).
My 2015-by-the-numbers plan is as follows:
- 52 photos
- 52 blog posts with said photos
- 12 stories or articles
- One novel
Of note, the numbers above are weekly or monthly — not for procrastinating so that I have to write and photograph like a madwoman in December. They’re also minimum goals.
I also want to knit 6 chemo caps and read 30 books. This past year, I aimed for 12 caps and reached 6 and 36 books and reached 27. Maybe I should try books on tape again, so I can multitask knitting and reading.
What are your 2015 numbers?
