The idea of an inbox, with ZERO emails in it, is an experiment I’ve always wanted to try. Yesterday, the experiment began…
Although the thought of just deleting everything sounded great, I took the more pragmatic approach and moved my entire pre-2022 inbox, dropping thousands of emails into a folder I labeled “Backfile.” By maintaining a neat and clean inbox, it will be one less thing I need to stress out with daily.
As for my other 2022 Resolutions:
First, I’ve been terrible with DigNuggetville over the last 3 years. So I want to strive more for consistency with uploading although with fewer loads in total. The goal of the blog is average at least 5 posts per month (once per week plus one bonus post).
Second, for the last 2 years (I actually think it’s the last 3), I set a goal to run the 8.4 mile Philadelphia Art Museum loop before Father’s Day and I have not reached that goal. It’s happening this year!
Third, I have not been reading as many books as I used to (I cannot same the same for podcasts as I listen to A LOT of podcasts). The goal this year is to read a least 6 books. The first two up are: (1) Gary Vaynerchuk’s Twelve and a Half and (2) Brene Brown’s Atlas of the Heart.
Speaking of podcasts, fourth, this is the year I start my podcast. I’ve been talking about starting a podcast for as long as I can remember. My role as with the Seton Hall Sports Poll fits nicely with a podcast. Stay tuned!
Fifth and finally, NFTs were one of the top stories of the year in 2021. I spent some (but not enough) effort on the NFT space as I believe this has the potential to be a significant shift to a Web 3.0 world. I’ve collected baseball cards for years and have been slowly unloading them but this year, I’m going to shift from physical collectibles (baseball cards) to digital collectibles (NFTs).
What are your goals for 2022?
