When 2012 kicked off I laid out some simple expectations for myself here: http://wp.me/p1xDhn-1h
With 2013 now upon us, I suppose tis time to post my expectations for the year
I was thankfully able to me or exceed my goals last year, so at the top of my plan for this year is to sustain that success. In concept this should be accomplished fairly easily as I set new goals above last years standard.
I come from a long line of pack rats, not every one of them would admit it, but for all the reasons one might give, we keep stuff. Over the last few years I have been forcibly changing my habits, other events (losing weight, having stuff stolen, moving to a smaller office, etc.) have sped this along and have reached a point where I want to make some additional strides in this area. The last two bastions of clutter will be struck down this year!
0. my office,
1. my workbench…
My hope is that this will improve my efficiency in work production and help push away from what I see as an ever increasing cultural drive to be defined by what you have, and not whom you are. The sale of my F250 is actually helping me understand just how far this concept spreads in our thinking as I wrestle with picking a suitable vehicle for my family’s needs.

By the end of this calendar year, I’ll two boys active with the BSA, Halle in Girl Scouts, and Jill knee deep in Upper D. Nursing at TTU… Given that reality I need to be excellent at making the most of project time. I am committed to making sure we don’t fall into the trap that “quality” time is just as good as” quantity” time…
