We all know New Year’s resolutions barely stretch past January, which is why I’m writing mine on the 5th and not the 1st. After a full week back at work, I thought of a some goals I’d like to accomplish this year — like actually do, not just have in mind. There’s plenty beyond this list, but I’ll be happy if these happen:


  • Make an authenticated thing people can use in the wild
  • Build out to show projects and tell my story better
  • Write a weekly blog post (about anything) every Friday
  • Redo to include accounts and membership


  • Learn and collaborate more on Slack; gossip and waste time less
  • Say “Hi!” to people I don’t know in the office
  • Write daily to-do lists on paper that stare me in the face
  • Give a talk on something I’ve learned


  • Carve out more time to maintain relationships
  • Go snowboarding at least a couple times
  • Hike more this summer
  • Eat less sugar and carbs
  • Meet people in our neighborhood/town
