Planning For 2012

2011 was an amazing year for me and my family.  I am excited about 2012 – and I thought I would share a few of the plans I have for the coming year.  (This article is very similar to one I just published over at my personal finance site – No Credit Needed.)

Writing –

In 2011, time available for writing was extremely limited.  Thankfully, my schedule has settled a bit, and my passion for writing appears to have returned.  I plan to write (a minimum of) two articles per day, one at No Credit Needed and another at No Calories Needed.  I also plan to announce the launch of a new site – one focusing on the spiritual aspect of my life.

Connecting –

My twitter handle is @NCN.  You can follow me here – twitter.com/NCN.  How cool is that?  I have a three-letter twitter handle.  Here’s the deal, though.  See, I signed up for twitter a LONG time ago (in Internet years) – just after the site started.  However, I didn’t see how big of a deal twitter would be – and really cost myself an opportunity to gain followers.  I hope to rectify that, in 2012.

Financial Planning –

This will come as no surprise – but my lack of writing has led to a lack of focus, when it comes to managing my finances.  Making the change from one job to another required a significant commitment, and now it’s time to laser-lock, and put into practice many of the lessons I’ve learned, and written about, over the years.  It’s been stated in a thousand ways – but personal finance is personal – it’s emotional, psychological, spiritual, and intellectual.  I’ve been treading water and now it’s time to get back to work.

Fitness Training –

I made a goal, a couple of years ago, to really focus on my health.  I’ve done a decent job of losing some weight – but not nearly enough.  I’ve continued to run, but I need to run more.  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.  I’ll have more to say in the coming days – with specific “fitness resolutions”.  If you haven’t done so, please consider subscribing to the site, via free daily email or rss.
