- Develop my photography skills
I recently had various compliments on photos I’ve taken, which is always very gratefully appreciated. However, having a nice camera does not make someone a good photographer, and I need to reduce the ratio of dud-photos to good-shots and work out how I can improve my skills further.
- Develop film-making skills
- Public speaking
I want to get better, more confident, and more natural when it comes to public speaking, in particular, I want to learn to modulate my voice – speaking clearly, forcefully, quietly, and clearly, forcefully and loudly are skills that I wish came naturally to me – unfortunately like most people, raising my voice means shouting, and lowering my voice means whispering. This doesn’t have to be.
- Learn to cook
There’s a difference between feeding oneself effectively, and being able to serve a meal to friends. I’m quite good at the former, but I aspire to the latter.
- Develop upper body strength
Hiking and cycling have helped my leg muscles become quite strong, but I still have the arms and hands of someone who works in front of a keyboard everyday.
- Do more cool stuff.
2012 involved doing lots of fun, cool things. 2013 should be just as good, if not better. Find out what’s fun, what’s achievable, and give it try.
