2014 Resolutions

I’m a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. I’m a fan of self-discipline in general. Goals, lists, and the like help me get the most out of life. I am not into making sweeping proclamations about how I will be different in the new year, but I am into simple, attainable tasks. And looking back at my resolutions from last year and the year before I can see that I’ve got a pretty high success rate so yay me. I’ve got a lot planned for 2014 so I broke it up into sections:


  • Hold weekly family meetings (more on this in a future post!)
  • Help Jack wean from his pacifier
  • Finally tackle the mini-remodel of our kitchen that I’ve been planning since we moved in
  • Continue to lose weight at a modest rate of 1-2 pounds per month (this should put me at or below my goal by the end of the year)


  • Choose and install a new blog theme
  • Submit some of my projects and posts to be featured on bigger sites
  • Set up a workflow for invoicing and communicating with sponsors


  • Create downloadable art prints and holiday card templates
  • Maintain a minimum of 50 listings at all times (I’m giving myself until July to start on this one)
  • Have all of holiday inventory listed by Halloween (in the past I’ve aimed to have it up by Thanksgiving and not only do I miss out on some holiday shoppers, I’m also forced to wait until December to do my own holiday shopping because preparing my shop for the holidays is pretty all-encompassing)

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. (570x570)

There are many more things I’d like to do this year, of course, but these are the biggies, and since this list is longer than those of years’ past I’ll be happy to knock out even just 3/4 of them. What are your goals for 2014?
