New Years Challenges (2014)

The other day I decided that I should sit down and make a list of things I’d like to challenge myself to do in this coming year.

So, to start, I thought of what areas I’d like to improve in or enjoy more in life. Then, after figuring them out, I wrote down those 6 areas, and expanded upon them. Below is my ‘list’ of things I want to accomplish in 2014. It seems like a lot, but all in all, I think it will keep my busy rather than overwhelm me:

– Memorize 2 poems
– Write poetry on at least 2 days each week
– Read 1 poem per day for at least 15 days out of each month

– Read Scripture every day
– Memorize 12 verses
– Read 12 books by 12 different authors

– Discover and listen to 6 new jazz artists

– Hike 12 new trails
– Go hunting and fishing

– Listen to the life stories of 6 people (stories I’ve never heard before)
– Learn to ask good questions, and then ask them
– Take Antonia on more dates

– Limit myself to 3 hours on Facebook weekly (keep tally marks for each minute)
– Limit myself to 1 hour on the Internet after work

What have you challenged yourself to do this year?
