Fitness-wise: finish the half-marathon that I signed up for without walking any of it, finish my 2nd Tough Mudder (March) and maybe do a third, go through at least one cycle each of P90x and Insanity, beat the ortho guys in a pull-up contest.
Academically: read more, become more efficient, do more teaching to medical students and interns.
Quit being such a bitch, and you've got half of it done.
I kid... I keeed. On the topic:
Honestly: Sometime back in October, I said to myself: "I'm going to let her (wifey) STOP talking before I offer any arguments or rebuttals." ... rather than interrupt then-and-there because I was no longer interested in her already 'invalid' argument.
Life is infinitely better. Its easy to now say: "Okay, I listened. You said... A-C-and-D.. but B comes before C! This is why I get frustrated and we fight. Hear me?!"
Our relationship is better by far. Simply because we're not both just waiting for the opportunity to shout over each other.
Losing ten pounds ? Hey man, lets form a club and make it happen. I'm 5'6'', 162 right now. I'd rather be 150. When I was 24 (not long ago), I was 5'6'', 146, and able to hold myself out horizontally from a flagpole. I'm pathetic now.
I was reading an article on exercise resolutions, and it hypothesized that the key to sticking to a resolution is to make it ridiculously easy. Instead of saying, "I'm going to work out for a half-hour every morning" say I'm going to do 40 body weight squats every day. Or instead of "I'm going to become strictly (vegan/paleo/zone diet), say "I'm going to make and eat a healthy home cooked meal twice a week". You'll feel good because it's easy to stick to the resolution and gradually the things that were difficult to perform consistently will become easier because you'll have started shaping the rest of your life to accommodate these (easy) good habits.
As for me, I've resolved to become reduce by 90% the number of low-angle goals I let in.
