I succeeded (#3) and gotten in stepwise directions towards (#1 and #2) my last year’s resolutions. Because of that, and because I’m awesome, I know I’ll be at least partly successful in these three resolutions. I have very good reasons to be more specific this year:
- Have at least one, preferably two, software products of mine become successful and attain a customer base. Likely contenders include CalCast/Maintenance Cast and a v2.0 RoR’s version of band-collab (what’s up right now is a bloody Drupal mess I wouldn’t wish upon my worst foes).
- To get one study of mine published in a peer-reviewed journal. Wait a minute, I don’t have any credentials! That little factor will make it all the more challenging and interesting. I have my eyes on certain food science journals. More details forthcoming…
- To acquire a patent. Provisional patent or patent pending will count for this one.
In addition to these, I’m serious about continuing my last year’s resolutions. That means two things – be good to my girlfriend, who I love, and try as hell to make better money than I did last year.
Oh, and to make things interesting, I’m going to make a deal with my friends that they can dunk me or something evil like that if I don’t make all three. And these are all fiendishly hard, aren’t they!!!
