We all try to be grandiose yet vague in our New Years’ resolutions (see here) so we can sound amazing and also have easy wins since you can’t measure: “be awesome!” but really, it’s another 12 months of chugging along, paying the bills, ticking off tasks and occasionally mulling existence. So here are the lesser resolutions for 2020.Maybe you want to read this, maybe you don’t.
Earn the scorn your opponents already have for you.Yours truly
The 2010s were a heck of a decade. In the last 10 years I watched my kid grow from 3 to 11, snagged a second passport, spent a lot of time talking to journalists and others about digital safety and information security in some of the toughest spots to think about such things, saw more countries than in all the previous decades of my life combined, Grew old(er) and actually felt it, got unhitched, watched both my countries take tragic moves toward the stupidly far right via Brexit and Trump while the left tore itself to shreds, moved house, dealt with mortgages, enjoyed a lot of coffee, some decent beer, etc. etc., etc.
My resolution is mostly unchanged from previous years: Have adventures.
