If you page back through my site, you might notice that 2010 was a total bust in term of posting. The first half of 2011 was a bust, too. I apologize.
In the past, I've done several posts on my New Year's Resolutions (2009, 2008, and 2007 – see, no 2010 or '11), and sometimes I'd even write to check in on how I was doing on said resolutions.
At work, we've recently been talking about 2012 planning and how we'd rather focus our energy on doing fewer things really well, instead of many things sort-of well. For my 2012 resolutions, I agree with that notion.
The problem? I have no clue what I would like to resolute this year.
Perhaps I'll start with learning the correct way to use the word "resolute," seeing that it's not a verb. Idiot.
I suppose there are a few things that I'd really like to do this year:
I think that's an achievable list. I probably won't check in to see how I'm doing mid-year, so you'll just have to glean from my updates if I'm doing alright.
If I were a company, my one resolution would be to NOT do things that would upset my customers. I'm looking at you Bank of America and Verizon. Do you really think that charging people to use their debit cards or paying bills online is going to be okay? What's that? You're losing millions of dollars? Hmmm. Maybe provide upgrades that people might want. Southwest seems to be doing just fine with that model.
If I were Roland Emmerich, I would resolve (again, with that non-verb!) make movies that weren't so stupid and reliant upon crazy effects.
If I were Fiat, I wouldn't run ads about your new car that self-proclaims to define a generation.
If I were Steven Moffat, I would produce, write, shoot, edit about 1,000 new episodes of Doctor Who for all of the fans to enjoy.
If I were an airplane pilot, I would point out ridiculous "points of interest" to the passengers while in-flight.
If I were in politics, I'd quit because I just remembered that I really dislike politics.
If I were someone that could grow a beard, I would.
If I were a betting man, I'd probably lose all of my money.
But I'm not any of those. I'm just Seth. I'll make due with my poor grammar skills and desires to cook and ride bikes more.
For me, 2011 was amazing. And I know that there's more where that came from.
I hope everyone has a fantastic 2012.
