OK, it is the time of the year for next year’s resolutions again, followings are what was happening in the last 12 months:

  1. Write more professional and personal blogs ( at least 4 each / month )
  2. Need to start having the habit of Test Driven Development
  3. Make a website ( the one I have in mind for a while )
  4. Rebuild Trevor’s website using Flex
  5. Replace our current ugly fence at home ( hire someone or DIY )
  6. Learn home gardening from TV show
  7. Learn some basic Video / Photo editing
  8. Do exercise at least 3-4 times a week ( if weather permits )
  9. Lose weight to 70KG, keep it for a few months and not allow it to jump back to more than 75KG
  10. Make 2 or more blood donations
  11. Organise a dinner for high school friends to get together
  12. Get my dad to come over and join us for at least a few weeks
  13. Teach Trevor how to swim ( not by me though )
  14. Beat my 14K run for the kids record set in 2009 on my birthday ( 1:11:18 )
  15. Buy more gifts for family

Some are done, but others didn’t commit enough, and some are out of my control, like my dad’s visa rejection. I consider it as not too bad, but still a lot to improve.

Now looking forward to 2012, I would like the following to happen:

Personal goals:

  1. Continue with more blogs ( again at least 8 posts each month )
  2. Rebuild Trevor’s website and build another one for our new baby girl
  3. Ride to work for whole 22KM at least 4 times a month
  4. Drop my weight to 65KG ( this is the most challenging one )
  5. Make 3 blood donations
Professional goals:
  1. Make my new project live
  2. Learn Symfony2 and build a site using it
  3. Learn mobile programming and build a mobile version of my project
  4. Get new ideas for new project(s)
  5. Write application to back up my server data to Dropbox automatically, including blog posts & images, svn etc
I hope I can get more done this year.
