Second goal of the year: ready, steady, go!!!
So like I alluded to previously in another post, I’m just going to forego the resolutions altogether. In their place, something more concrete can be established: outright goals! However, these are going to be assigned with a minor twist. Instead of simply making a goal, I might as well throw a bonus of sorts in with each one. A bonus in the sense of a hope: an additional goal that is above and beyond the original goal. This way, the goals can be something realistic and achievable (as they should be), but they also come with an added challenge if the original goal is too easily achievable.
So. First goal of the year!
Rule #1 about resolutions: They’re stupid.
Rule #2 about resolutions: Wait, why are you bothering with resolutions again?
I need to learn and master some things this year to improve myself. It may not make sense on a superficial level, but I need to purge myself of Twitter and Facebook temporarily. They have become a crutch for me to garner a sense of pseudo-community, and I feel the need to break that to ensure I don’t become addicted to it.
Resolution #1: Go completely IM/tweet/update free for at least a week. Potentially two, which may be conditionally decided after the first week.
