Not many events in the previous year that will be important to my career or personal life. It was a dry year. Unplanned, directionless I just sailed.
If some things that makes the year worth remembering, they are
>> I toured/visited/trekked Pondichery, Honnemaradu, Dharmasthala, Ooty, Munnar, Shivanasamudra, Ombattu Gudda etc
>> I bought computer system.
>> Saved/invested money (Phew…first time!)
>> Arranged/attended various get-togethers!
>> Finally started reading novels.
>> Of course, started this blog!

Goal Setting:
I have decided to set myself some quantifiable and measurable goals for me this year. All previous years I called these resolutions and had no way of measure. Thanks to “industryâ€? experience I can set goals professionally. These will be reviewed during the year end.

>> Read 10 (at least) novels/general books. And at least 4 technical books (this is too less, but better than NONE – my previous year’s count).
>>Wake up before a fixed time in the morning – any day/any weather/any going-to-bed-time.
>>Visit/ spend time with “relativesâ€?. I can do at least this much for all the love and respect they have for my family.
>>To *reduce* money spent on movies. Instead watch “playsâ€? and invest in “booksâ€?.

Common to every year resolutions:
>>Keep planning entire year, not just new year resolutions.
>>Manage time well
>>Keep visiting this list to review the progress.

There are few other “personalâ€? goals set. Hope I will be able to put better stuff here next year.
