Resolved...Sort Of 

Let's face it: it's going to be a big, big year for me, what with the impending kid, forced job loss, and subsequent need for relocation. Given that, I'm setting the bar low for resolutions this year. Here's some realistic, realizable self-commitments for the coming months.
  1. I will smoke slightly less, make several halfhearted attempts to quit, and feel guilty about it.

  2. I will try to put Willow to bed one night a week, as requested. However, I will put her in charge of reminding me.

  3. I will return library books on time, or at least take that crucial first step of putting them in the car when they are due.

  4. I will eat at least one marginally healthy food item per day.

  5. I will not get addicted to more than 5 new technologies. On second thought, better call it ten, just in case.

  6. I will blog a minimum of seven times a week, though it may mean overblogging on Fridays to catch up.

  7. Similarly, I will not update my blog so many times a day that the better entries remain predominantly unread, unless I am really, really bored.

  8. When the new baby is born in April, I will remain in hospital with my wife for at least half of every day.

  9. I will arrive on time for work for at least the first month of my new job, when I get one.

  10. I will make shorter lists wherever possible.

There. I don't see what the big deal is about these -- never have. Incidentally, if you, too, want to feel pressured to make real resolutions this year, start with the 100+ list of other blogger resolutions up at technorati. (Thanks to daddyblogger The Zero Boss for the link!)

My resolutions are different! I try to push corporations to create more corporate blogging jobs like the recently created Chief Blogging Officer! Why not bring to big corporations Ricardo Semler's idea of The Seven-Day Weekend: Changing the Way Work Works?

I guess there should be a better mix between private and corporate blogging! All the Microsoft geeks already started the good sample!

I wish you an excellent New Year!
