December ambitions.

December 1st, 2009


Taking a cue from my friend Mack Collier, I’m upping my game in December. Here are three key ambitions:

1. Better blogging. What with travel, the press of work duties, and whatnot over the past few months, I haven’t blogged as much here or on my professional blog as I’d like. So, I’m giving myself the challenge of writing 100 blog posts — across all blogs — during December.

So far, so good. Early this morning I put up a little item at BigPapelbon about the Patriots’ crushing loss to the Saints last night. Later, I gave myself a pat on the back at my work blog for being named a speaker at SXSW 2010. Add the earlier post here and this one . . . and I have a mere 96 to go. (I promise I won’t make too many of them posts keeping track of my number of posts.)

2. Better fitness. If you’ve been reading my workout updates, you’ll know that November was a good month for me on the bench press. Unfortunately, it was a bad month for leg workouts — I did only two heavy leg sessions and one moderate one, when I should have done about half a dozen heavy sessions. My cardio work also left a lot to be desired.

The big challenge I’m taking on this month is to get through the holidays in better shape than when I started. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

3. Less paper. Paper is my absinthe. That stack of papers that has been my constant companion for years? This month, I’m whittling it down to what fits in a single notebook. Mark it down.

What about you? What are YOUR ambitions for December?

    […] ‘Member when I said, way back on 1 December, that I wanted to write 100 blog posts in the month? Now that the month is over, I note that the actual total was, ahem, 20. That’s what I get for setting arbitrarily high goals. […]
