Realistic goals can be helpful and this is a perfect excuse to set it smile.gif

Mine's to improve at music theory, singing, learn to improvise and start creating some original tracks... and i vaguely see the words neoclassical shredding towards the end of 2010... laugh.gif

Whats yours? ?? Doesn't have to be music related smile.gif

I am going to make several new year resolutions (I am full of good intentions!!) rolleyes.gif

These are;
  1. To loose weight and get fitter, target is to lose15 kg by June
  2. To reduce my red wine consumption, tough one this as I like my Rioja!!
  3. To learn more Spanish
  4. To improve my playing - I need to consider my targets carefully, going to work these out today with a proper practice agenda.
  5. To improve my music theory knowledge


Please try to encourage and nag me from time to time!! tongue.gif

2010:

-Get in shape after Christmas (like every year, I manage to do it until Easter)
-Improve my songwriting skills (they suck!)
-Improve my lead playing (I can shred the hell out of my guitar but I am dreadfully bad at phrasing, linking licks and composing solos)
-Learn Theory (since 2007 on my List, I really gotta start!!)

-Find a better drummer and get my Band rolling out for the first gigs!

Gear:

Will have to formulate these carefully tomorrow, as I do realize these, and don't want to turn my life into hell:P
There are two that I know for sure, one is to record at least 4 lvl 7 lessons for REC (may be quite hard, we shall see).
Another one is to work on my strength, as I already lose some weight in the last months by diet and exercises, so now the little goal I have is to be able to do 40 proper push-ups in one row, by the end of next year. I bet that it will come quite fast, or not at all:P

Yeah getting more specific is always my problem biggrin.gif My New Year Resolutions are almost always wishes, like become a better pianist (or this year become a better guitarist biggrin.gif), so I thought a bit about it and finally I decided to set my goals month for month. Or better said: I'll give it a try laugh.gif As I started a daybook in 2009 and keep on writing in 2010, I'll have the possibility to re-read what I did the whole month and analyse this. Don't know where this is taking me, if I'll give me too much unnecessaire pressure, but I'll give this a try for a few months smile.gif
