Punk Rock OR’s New Year’s resolutions

I casually constructed a list of New Year’s resolutions for 2018:

  1. Unsubscribe, don’t just delete academic spam emails.
  2. Blog more frequently, especially about my research.
  3. Say no more often to carve out more time for research that is free from email, twitter, and other distractions.
  4. Write and edit my writing every day, even if only for a few minutes.
  5. Read popular science/tech books for fun.
  6. Run a marathon and qualify for Boston.

I must confess that I’ve already failed miserably on #3a and said yes to something, but I am making time for research today (#3b) so I’ll count that as progress. I’ve also completed every other item on the list today except for #6.  The challenge will be to sustain my effort toward these goals.

What are your resolutions?
