My List of Things I Probably Won’t Accomplish in 2023…

Over the years I have learned that I am a phenomenal planner/preparer, but am terrible at the execution. I really live my life based on what I feel like doing in the moment instead of with any ounce of discipline. I love New Year resolutions, but I’d bet you $42 dollars I won’t carry out more than about three of these. When trying to develop new habits, Andrew Huberman (my favorite neuroscientist […wait you don’t have a favorite neuroscientist?] and podcast host), suggests picking 6 new habits, writing them down, and aiming to incorporate 4-6 per day for 21 days and see which ones become habits. If you’re interested in the science behind it all, he breaks this down into more detail (leveraging time after waking and serotonin, cortisol, and adrenaline levels, rest, which types of habits are best to perform at which phases during the day, and more) at the following site:

But for those of you not interested in neuroscience, here’s my list of things I probably won’t accomplish in 2023.

  1. Learn to like drinking hot tea
  2. Lose 14 pounds by March 1st
  3. Lay down my night owl tendencies and become a morning person
  4. Read a book a month
  5. Go on a mini-vacation with Kyle
  6. Take the kids to the river at least 3 times this summer

  10. Do yoga 4 times a week
  11. Turn our shop into a home gym
  12. Call Uncle Dusty to electrify our shop to become a home gym
  13. Avoid paying any more Share Medical Center bills
  14. Become friends with someone in my new (old) town who knows it’s okay to show up unannounced at my door, eat my food without asking, and calls me just to talk and is open to this love being reciprocated.
  15. Finish the first draft of a book
  16. Spend time with Jesus daily in my peace place
  17. Go on a date with Kyle at least once a month

P.S. The photo here does not include what I’m doing tonight. If you know me, you know I’m sitting in my yoga pants not sipping champagne out of beautiful glasses or eating nicely chopped fruit, but yes…I will probably eat some blueberries later thanks to Kroger.

P.S.S. Kroger has really flippin’ great bags.

Happy New Year!
