Last year, I publicly shared that my New Year’s resolution would be to read more. I bought a Nook Color in hopes that would help with my quest to increase my reading activities. Guess what? IT WORKED!

If you add a tech-y toy to just about any activity, I’ll probably be a little more interested in it. That’s the bait for me.

So, with that mission accomplished, I’m turning my attention to 2012 and something that can actually be attainable. It’s not practical to say your resolution is something HUGE, and then you fail and feel bad about yourself. After a few years of reasonable goals, you can start to up the ante. But to many people set themselves up for failure. I’d rather not set a New Year’s Resolution, than one so massive that I may not be able to accomplish it!

If you know me, you know I do freelance design. And since I can do that whenever I want (my own hours), I’ve tended to gravitate to “Vampire Hours”. That’s not so good. Because going to bed after 4AM usually means waking up in mid-afternoon. I know, I know. Terrible.

So, my Resolution is to get back into more “normal” hours, as I call them. Eventually I want to be waking up between 11 and noon. I know that’s still really late to most people (lol), but if I don’t have to be awake in the early AM hours, I’m not going to be!

The point is I’m going to do whatever I can to get into bed a little earlier each night until I’m able to get up at that target time. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, so why not now? Small life changes lead to more productivity and more (bigger) changes!

Here we goooooooo!
