Today marks three months, since I made my 2011 New Year’s Resolutions. I changed my schedule for reporting my progress to quarterly on or about every three months.
My 2011 New Year’s Resolutions revealed rather ambitious goals. These goals motivate me to be more determined to achieve these goals. I know it won’t be easy and I expect there will be difficulties, but I am determined to succeed. Every Friday, I will share my progress so you can see how I am doing.
Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs – I want to be part of the WISEBREAD Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs. I am using Open Site Explorer (OSE), which is a link popularity checker and backlink analysis tool. You will notice the OSE figures did not change, I believe they change monthly. In addition, I am using Alexa Ranking to check my progress.

Increase workouts – Increase workouts from two (2) times a week to three (3) times a week.
Since Daylight Savings Time, I am riding my bicycle outdoors for nearly ninety minutes twice (Tuesday/Thursday) a week . Since I started exercising on my stationary bicycle, I read eight (8) books.
Be more patient – In the past, I used my impatience to drive myself to reach goals faster and better.
Keeping a journal forced me to address some of the causes of my impatience! Although I may have a long way to go, I noticed small changes in my behavior. Am I now a easy going, relaxed patient guy? Not exactly, however I do see some progress. Some things that would set me off before, does not even get a reaction. It is still a work in progress!
