Here are my final three resolutions for 2012.  Thought I would share these as well.  My hope in posting these five resolutions over the course of the week has been to give ideas to others, but especially to get them out there so others can help to hold me accountable.  Ask me from time to time how it’s going and if I am staying on track.  I would greatly appreciate it!

I will write 4 blog postings per week.                                                                                      

  • Reasons:
    • o I want to become a better writer.
    • o It helps me to really solidify ideas for messages.
    • o It can be an encouragement to others.
    • Obstacles:
      • o Writing takes work.  It is not easy and is difficult to come up with topics.
      • o Schedule gets very busy between work, family and school.
    • New Habits:
      • o Plan writing time into my schedule daily in my weekly review.
      • o Keep a continue list of topics in Evernote, in my Blog folder.

Read through the entire Bible in 2012.

  • Reasons:
    • To grow as a disciple of Christ.
    • I did not read through the entire Bible last year.  I did more specific readings.
    • Obstacles:
      • Waking up early and getting my reading done prior to working out.
      • Lot of busy days when I have so much to get done.
    • New Habits:
      • Up at 5 AM on Sunday through Friday.  Saturday can flex depending on schedule.
  1. Read 2 books a month in 2012.
  • Reasons:
    • I want to continue to learn and grow, as a dad, a minister, a leader, an organizer and a speaker.
  • Obstacles:
    • It requires time to read.
    • Make better use of my book budget.
    • School reading and study time tends to interfere with other reading.
  • New Habits:
    • Read books until I lose interest.  Many books become redundant and instead of reading until the book is finished, read until the information has been covered and then move on.
    • Continue to plan daily reading time into my schedule.
