2014 Resolutions

It's the time of the year for resolutions, getting better, improvement and all that jazz.

So who is ready for another year to go down the drain with no action?

(Quit pointing at me).

Thanks for the cartoon.

In no particular order, here are my 2014 resolutions:

1.) Start reading more and watching television less.
I just get annoyed when I watch television. It doesn't matter if it's sit-coms or cable news. It stresses me out, makes me mad and doesn't serve any real purpose. At least reading I can try to make myself a more intelligent person.

2.) Take One Day a Weekend for Fun
The past year I've spent a lot of my free time doing things that were chores. We painted the house, remodeled two bathrooms, and spent a ton of money on things that were investments in the future. It's draining. I'd like to spend more time at the gym and the shooting range. Speaking of which, I was asked to contribute to this piece on what handgun caliber is best and I totally dropped the ball but I'm glad to see some great shooters mentioned in it. Next year, no more dropping the ball on stuff that matters --- I'm a little jealous I didn't get my thoughts submitted in time!

3.) Focus. Focus. Focus.
As much as I try to keep busy, I need to focus more and start knocking things out systematically. There is a ton I could get done in a day if I would start using all my brainpower at once on a given task. I haven't done a good job of prioritizing over the past year and that's got to change!

So, do you do the whole resolution thing or not? Anything you want to share? Want to be accountability-buddies? (Just kidding, I hate that stuff).

Welcome to 2014, I hope it's a great one for you!
