For 2007 I will…


Taking a leaf from Derek Featherstone. I have decided that its a good idea that I should at least try and document (publicly) my goals for the next 12 months. I don’t usually even privately both with this type of thing and just let the New Year slide on by. But I believe I need to mentally organise my normally chaotic mind.

For 2007 I’m going to at least attempt:

  • Do more networking outside of the web community (not that I don’t love you guys).
  • Drink less (well try too).
  • Sleep more and consume less coffee / Red Bull / Pepsi Max.
  • Work out how to work smarter not longer hours and implement it.
  • Get organised.
  • Hire good developer and CSS people.
  • Leverage the weekend back for the family and I.
  • Read more tech books cover to cover.
  • Stabilise the business income.
  • Take up public speaking.
  • Do less coding and more consulting.
  • Write more (hence what you’re reading).
  • Don’t read blogs during the day.
  • Watch less TV.
  • Attend at least 2 conferences this year.
  • Take up rock climbing (just need a partner or a belayer).
  • Get those decent pair of road blades.
  • Take more photos.

And here are a few that I really wish I could get to:

  • Get back on the bike and do more road cycling.
  • Read for pleasure.
  • Draw and paint for pleasure.
  • Write fiction.
  • Take up Kung Fu.
  • Learn to play the Sax (okay its really dorky I know).

Looks like there is no conversation here yet, why not start one.
