I don't do New Year's Resolutions as I usually have a tendency to blow those by the end of February. However, I do have lists that I hope to accomplish. This is a no pressure way for me to attain certain "goals" and usually finish them faster than if I had written them as a resolution. I am sure there is some psychological reasoning behind that but really, I don't care.
What does this mean to you? I will share some of my list in this post so you can see what is planned. Keep in mind with the exception of the top three, it probably will change, before the end of 2012.
- Bi-weekly Blog Post
- 5 retweets/day
- 5 tweets/day
- 2 special blog posts
- Complete first novel
- Start 2nd novel
- Learn 5 useful prepping skills
- Hone 5 different prepping skills
- Bug out bag for each family member
- Increase food storage to 3 month supply
- Kids and wife to gun range once/month (thank you dear for that suggestion)
...and the list may grow or shrink from there.
In the midst of me creating this list, I read an interesting post from Mr. Jack Spirko on thesurvivalpodcast.com site. The post was about a site called 13Skills.com. The site is geared to help you learn and/or hone your prepping skills. Now, I got a little gung ho and decided to click 13 to start with and then thought a bit and have brought it back to ten. Folks, at minimum check out the site, get registered and at least learn or hone two skills for the year. I think you will be happy that you did.
That wraps it up for this post. MERRY CHRISTmas and a Happy New Year.
(Please note, I do not wish you Happy Holidays because our men and women have fought for me to be able to say, Merry Christmas.)
Check us out on Twitter, along with @SurvivorJane, @SelfReliantinfo and @STO_Radio as they have vastly contributed to my knowledge as well as some other great folks on #preppertalk. They have websites that you should visit as well for some great and useful information.
