Last year I failed to update the goals page online. It was a big miss. I had lots of good “reasons” for not doing it – and only one reason to do it. I said I would.

This year, I’m not taking anything for granted. I am posting them now (imperfect as they are).  I’m making them bad – and later I’ll work at making them better.

Theme for the year: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Goal for the year: Life is simpler by every measure (need to quantify)
