What I’m reading

Nothing better than a relaxing morning at home with a huge cup of coffee, reading and getting stuff done.

Today’s reading is all about goal setting, reflecting, and new year’s resolutions. If that’s your cup of tea, or your feeling inspired as 2010 ends in only a few hours, check out these links:

  • 11 Weird Things To Do In 2011 I’m a huge personal finance geek. I’ve been reading Dave Ramsey for awhile now, and while I don’t necessarily agree with everything 100% (who does, really), he has some good points and great stories to keep you focused. “When you live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.”
  • A quick glimpse of 2010 – I love reading people’s year in review posts at this time of year. That’s actually what got me started a few years back in really putting my goals into writing and making stuff happen. Here’s a post by Will (who I often refer to as Will from the subway, after a FB party a couple years back), with some amazing accomplishments, and really brings home the message of focusing on the positive and what comes next.
  • The Only New Year’s Resolution You Will Have to Make – Some great tips by my friend Andrei about how to make your new year’s resolution stick. He’s a fitness guru, and if you’re like me with some fitness focused goals, definitely a good read.
  • 2011: My Year Without Frivolous Spending – I LOVE Red’s blog. She’s a great inspiration for personal finance and budgeting, and so relatable and easy to read. In 2011, Red’s going a year without spending, as my Dad would say, “on crap.” I really admire what she’s doing, and am getting inspired to work out something like this myself – I love a good challenge.

That’s what I’ve been reading this morning, and doing a few things around the house too (finally getting out that glue gun to help the reindeers from falling off their stand), and working on this site :) A few design things I want to fix, but so far, so good!

Hope you have a great New Year’s Eve and hope you have a rocking 2011 :)
