Bad Habits

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Ok midnight tonight will make it exactly two weeks into the new year, but it just doesn’t feel like I have officially rang in the new year because I never posted anything about it. So here goes.

Happy New Year!

Ahh, much better.

Seriously, new years bring new opportunities to lash out at old habits. I am going to at least address one or two of my bad habits, but I refuse to address all of them and absolutely will not actually promise to overcome any of them. Pretty sad I know, but hey, fight your own habits.

Hi, my name is Big Strad and I am a Dr. Pepper addict. I chain drink the stuff all day long. No kidding. I must admit that it is my worst vice… at least in my mind. And NO, I will not stop drinking it, but I know I need to cut back on the stuff and I will…even if it kills me.

Juggling projects and tasks is something that I have prided myself on. However, I tend to juggle too many at one time and frequently delay them all, and even worse, cause some of them to never come to fruition. Shame on me. But I am going to prioritize these projects and start getting some of them out the door. In fact, I will be blogging about some of these projects in the very near future. I promise, I have some good things in the works for the entertainment biz.

I mean if there really is such a thing as a social butterfly, then I wouldn’t even be a moth.

Those of you that know me know that I am as deep into technology as I am into the entertainment biz, and as much as my family, friends, business partners, associates and pretty much everybody that I know have flocked to the whole social networking thing, I have all but ignored it. It’s not that I don’t understand the technology, in fact I have even programmed and championed similar technology initiatives before most people had even heard of the Internet. And I have even had a FaceBook account for quite a while; I just hadn’t gotten around to actually caring enough about it to actually use it. I mean if there really is such a thing as a social butterfly, then I wouldn’t even be a moth. So, I have decided that I will try to do more social networking with friends past and present. In fact, I have even logged into my FaceBook account. I can do this…even if this kills me too.

I suppose I could list all of the usual things as well; work out more, save money, make more money, etc., but I will probably take a stab at doing all of these types of things because we should all be doing them anyway. But I thought I would focus on the things that I consider bad habits but don’t really want to shake – but really should.

Alright I have all of this resolution stuff behind me now. Next time we dive back into the fun stuff. Go wiggle.
