2011 was an amazing year for me and my family.Â I am excited about 2012 â€“ and I thought I would share a few of the plans I have for the coming year.Â (This article is very similar to one I just published over at my personal finance site – No Credit Needed.)
In 2011, time available for writing was extremely limited.Â Thankfully, my schedule has settled a bit, and my passion for writing appears to have returned.Â I plan to write (a minimum of) two articles per day, one at No Credit Needed and another at No Calories Needed.Â I also plan to announce the launch of a new site â€“ one focusing on the spiritual aspect of my life.
My twitter handle is @NCN.Â You can follow me here â€“ twitter.com/NCN.Â How cool is that?Â I have a three-letter twitter handle.Â Hereâ€™s the deal, though.Â See, I signed up for twitter a LONG time ago (in Internet years) â€“ just after the site started.Â However, I didnâ€™t see how big of a deal twitter would be â€“ and really cost myself an opportunity to gain followers.Â I hope to rectify that, in 2012.
Financial Planning –
This will come as no surprise â€“ but my lack of writing has led to a lack of focus, when it comes to managing my finances.Â Making the change from one job to another required a significant commitment, and now itâ€™s time to laser-lock, and put into practice many of the lessons Iâ€™ve learned, and written about, over the years.Â Itâ€™s been stated in a thousand ways â€“ but personal finance is personal â€“ itâ€™s emotional, psychological, spiritual, and intellectual.Â I’ve been treading water and now itâ€™s time to get back to work.
Fitness Training –
I made a goal, a couple of years ago, to really focus on my health.Â I’ve done a decent job of losing some weight â€“ but not nearly enough.Â I’ve continued to run, but I need to run more.Â I plan to make 2012 a productive year, a year to make more progress, grow stronger, and be fit.
These are my plans for 2012.Â Iâ€™ll have more to say in the coming days â€“ with specific â€œfitness resolutionsâ€.Â If you havenâ€™t done so, please consider subscribing to the site, via free daily email or rss.
