Not so New Year Resolutions!

I don't do New Year's resolutions. Partly because I generally have a hard time keeping promises to myself any time of year. Partly because I think it's kind of arbitrary...

Either way, a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to try an accountability deal, I read about on Randy Ingermason's website. I haven't actually put it into motion, but here are the things I will be making myself accountable for:

1. Writing
Write or edit 4 days a week.
Blog 3 days a week.

2. Languages
Study Japanese 4 days a week.
Refresh Spanish, French or Italian 1 day a week.

3. Fitness
Work out 4 days a week.

4. Cleaning
Clean once a week.

I've got an exercise book and made it into a register of sorts to record what I do and when. Everytime I miss out on one of the categories, I will put 500 yen into a bottle, and I will give the contents of that bottle over to a charity/friend at the end of the year.

I'm really hoping this helps me stick with it, because I really need to stick with something. I'm getting too old to keep chasing my tail.

Happy New Year peoples. Here's hoping that you manage to grow over the next 365 days!
