In response to David Sifry's post on the Technorati Weblog, asking:
"What are your New Years Resolutions?"
My New Years resolution for 2006 is two fold. First of all, I would like to spend more time on taking care of my body. I had a rough year in which I did not spend as much time in the gym as much as I should have and due to my various projects and a taxing work schedule which contributed to me getting mono in September. I lost a lot of weight and I would like to be more healthy in general. Working out your body helps relieve stress and helps bolster happy thoughts that you need to have while living in Chicago and it's 8 or 9 months of winter weather.
Secondly, I would like to spend more time smelling the roses in 2006. 2005 was a blur and while it was enjoyable it was also stress and tight schedule filled. In 2006, I would like to make a better effort to take some time to enjoy life.
Now I understand both of these items may appear to be total opposites however, I believe that they can be done. Will this take away from my time blogging on Somewhat Frank? No probably not. In 2006, I plan to focus my energy on my career, my MBA pursuit and blogging on business, technology and how it affects life. I feel it can be balanced with taking care of my body and smelling the roses. We will know it a year if I am able to follow through.
