At 2012 is off and running!

Published by at 1:10 am under Personal

Today is my first day at work and it started with a bang, we pushed out a new version of our ecommerce web site at kingschools.com and over all even with a few speed bums and some tense times it all went well. I really can’t take any credit at all for the success as the rock stars around me did all the heavy lifting. I hope the rest of the year will go as smoothly!

Now on to the obligatory list of goals for the year. My brother-in-law Ross Rizzo did a great smart thing to help all of us in the family to make 2012 the best it can be. He send a email to everyone in the family asking for two lists of goals. One list was to be the reasonable goals and the other was to be less reasonable. I decided to publish my list as I am a firm believer in failing or succeeding in public so you stay motivated and others can learn from your actions.

Reasonable Goals:

  1. Run a half marathon by the end of the year
    • Will identify the event by the end of January
  2. Get 2 product web sites up
  3. Coach Lacrosse
  4. Spend more time with my boys
    • I know it’s open ended but I could use some help identifying a metric to us on this
  5. Don’t work too much
  6. Tell the important people in my life how important they are and showing it to them


  1. Become the wineries brew master
  2. Develop a killer phone app
  3. Get a better grip on my finances
  4. Get my boys to enjoy more physical activates
  5. Rewrite socalcodecamp.com

I will post about how I do on each of these but please feel free to comment with suggestions.

I hope each of you will take some time to think what you would like to accomplish this year and then make a plan and do it!

Happy new year!

  1. Hey Woody,
    That’s a nice list of goals you’ve put together. Good luck on achieving each one of them. I am writing because I see one of your goals is to rewrite socalcodecamp.com. If you don’t know me by now, I am a web designer who has presented on several occacions at codecamp. I’d like to offer my design services to you (free of charge) to redesign socalcodecamp.com. I am passionate about web design and would love to be part of this project.

    Don’t hesitate to contact me should you need to discuss this in more detail. Here is the prototype I’ve put together for my presentation this coming weekend so you can get a feeling of my design style: http://designsdrive.com/code/index.htm

    Best regards,
