New Years Resolutions

I'm not a person of big plans, so I usually resent making New Years Resolutions. However it seems to me I could try to be "a man with a plan" for a change. So this is what I came up with:  
  • Shield my boys from the rigor of our education system by reaffirming the notion, that learning is fun and an adventure.  
  • Going on a Holiday (hadn't had one since I started TAO Consulting) with the family.  
  • A dance class with the best of my wifes (Don't tell her it is a surprise)  
  • Shedding some pounds and do more sport (getting below 88 kg)
  • Restart my Chinese lessons  
  • Get my PMP certification from PMI  
  • Learn a new language (Ruby and Fabric are the main contenders)  
  • Restart the Lotus User Community in Singapore  
  • Work on some exiting and well paid projects
  • Have at least one release each of my SourceForge projects

... and thousand things more.
