Tracking New Year Resolutions: April ’13 Recap

Yes, I’m still going strong tracking my 2013 New Year resolutions. Hopefully you can say the same. If not, perhaps my continued monthly recaps may inspire you to re-energize and revisit your own resolutions.

Resolution #1- Utilize My Youtube Channel Via Vlogging
Specific Goal- Vlog Twice a Month
Accomplished? YES

In April I did something a little different with my second Youtube video. Rather than a straight up vlog, I tapped into my creativity. The result features my fan take on the Cleveland Indians’ 2013 “This is a Tribe Town” campaign. Those unfamiliar with the ad series, the Indians created radio and television commercials starring Tribe manager Terry Francona, first baseman Nick Swisher, and radio broadcaster Tom Hamilton. Each individual shares his connection to the city and explains why Cleveland is a “Tribe Town.”

Resolution #2- Post Here on a Weekly Basis
Specific Goal- Post every Friday
Accomplished? YES

While I didn’t necessarily meet my Friday deadline every week, I succeeded at posting once a week. Additionally I posted an extra time, compensating for my last missed February blog post. Moving forward through 2013 I will increase my efforts to ensure a regular weekly Friday/early Saturday posting schedule.

Resolution #3- Keep to Due Dates
Specific Goal- Don’t Receive Any Inquiries About ETAs
Accomplished? NO

Yeah, so this remains a problematic issue for me. Admittedly I do okay when given a set deadline. The trouble occurs with less restrictive due dates. I know where I’m failing but yet I’m slacking off in implementing actions to resolve the situation. Maybe the recent change in my age (I’m an April birthday boy :)) will offer a solid enough mental push to finally motivate me to establish a better sleep and work schedule. Currently both prove chaotic, making time management challenging.
