I always make New Year’s resolutions, and I usually do keep them. The trick is in crafting resolutions that you’re likely to keep.
For instance, for 2007, I resolved to have more fun and eat more macaroons. That was a good year.
For 2008, I resolved to learn how to play the accordion. Heh. That one didn’t quite work out.
So, for 2009, I resolve to:
- eat at all of Andrey Durbach’s restaurants. I’ve already eaten at Pied a Terre, so I just need to make my way to La Buca and Parkside.
- stop eating at the same places all the damn time, even if they’re good. For instance, I’ve yet to eat at La Quercia, Campagnolo, or Les Faux Bourgeois.
- be more present. The wheels in my head are always chugging along, and I’d like to take a few moments to just sit and be present.
- run the 10km Vancouver Sun Run in under 60 minutes. I ran 10km in 2005 and 2007 for National Capital Race Weekend and came in at 58 minutes and 62 minutes, respectively.
