Looking at my blog, I see that I have not been active for a long time. This is disappointing to me because I really wanted to keep this blog updated just for my sake. It isn’t like I was just wasting the time doing nothing, though.
Since my last post, I have climbed the corporate ladder a bit, gotten married, and had a wonderful baby girl. The last one is the main one that has taken a lot of my attention. I always knew having a kid would cut into your available free time, but I underestimated the amount of time that you constantly think of them.
You worry about their safety, their development, their happiness, and questioning if you are doing a good job. So even if the baby isn’t around, your mind is still focused on them. This isn’t a bad thing, but it is just an adjustment you have to go through. It is a bit better now that she is a little older and I have more confidence in what I’m doing. So now one of my goals for this year is to allow myself some free time for other things in my life. I think it is healthy to have some time just for yourself, but of course, the baby is priority one.
So for this year, I’m making the following resolutions:
- Get back in shape
- I want to get down to 155-160
- I want to workout with weights regularly
- Write at least 3 mobile apps
- Post to this blog at least once a week
- Make regular date nights with my wife
- Think of ideas to start a business
Some of these goals will be easier than others, but I am feeling really driven to follow through this year. Sometimes in the past, you make resolutions but you only half-heartedly work at them. I guess time will tell, but this post is a start!
