This year my New Year’s resolution is two-fold:
Firstly, to keep my New Year’s resolution this year, which is (secondly) to blog at least once a week.
I’m not even bothering sharing my financial goals with you, they’re basically the same as they were the last two years running (note that they have yet to be achieved), and when I emailed Ramit Sethi about them he said this in response: “i cover irregular income automation in my book. know yourself. stop trying to depend on willpower, which seems to fail you repeatedly”.
I wish you could see the unnecessarily long e-mail that I sent him explaining my personal financial situation (including my variable income) and my goals for 2011 (this was solicited from Ramit, don’t worry), but you can’t because I don’t actually want you to know in such detail how financially-challenged I am.
I should just be impressed he read that monolithic work at all, much less responded – but mostly I just feel bad that he says he covers it in his book, which I’ve read, and I clearly don’t remember as well I should have before writing him about it. EMIFAIL.
Sometimes I wish I could just resolve not to make any more resolutions or, for that matter, promises of any kind to myself or others, but that kind of defeats the purpose, so…
Here’s to more blogging in 2011!
