jon_chaisson: (Mooch writing)
Here we are at the start of 2017, ready and rearing to go! Well, at least some of us, anyway. We stayed up last night (completely unplanned, mind you) and watched back episodes of the UK version of Time Team and reading. Today was spent doing little except putting up the new calendars, cleaning up around the house a bit, putting away the tree, and watching football. A nice relaxing weekend, all told. We have tomorrow off, so that'll be our Going Outside Day (we usually go for a neighborhood walk in the first day or so of the year), heading down to Balboa Theater to see Rogue One.

The year has started off pretty well so far, on a personal level. I did update the writing whiteboard, and my aims for this year are Consistency, Exercise and Expertise. Yeah, I know, it sounds like the BusinessSpeak I dislike so much, but at the same time, it's precisely what I'm shooting for. I want to be consistent in my output, as well as constantly working on it (exercise) so I get better at it (expertise).

I do in fact have more concrete specific goals that I'm working on, such as finishing The Balance of Light by the end of this month (and releasing it soon after), along with others that I haven't revealed publicly as of yet. The new year is going to be not only a busy one, but a step up in professionalism for me.

On a personal level? I aim to persevere, despite whatever odds are thrown my way. Yeah, that's a big vague, but it encompasses a lot of different things, and it's a goal I can achieve.


Here's to hoping everyone has an exceptional 2017!
