I will engage in mental, physical, and emotional/spiritual “resets” every 90 minutes.

I will relentlessly demonstrate my love for Moe and my family.
I will strive to build bridges – not walls – with every interpersonal encounter.

I will begin writing book #4.
I will make at least two blog entries per week.
I will seek deeper understanding of the patterned/mathematical underpinnings of nature and music.
I will eat real food only (predominantly an organically raised, plant-based diet).
I will purposefully learn more about optimizing my physical/intellectual/spiritual health.

I will practice music for at least 20 minutes each day.
I will add one song per quarter to my performance repertoire.
I will play music with friends at least twice per year.
I will be more observant of form, function, patterning, and relationships within integrated systems.
I will be a more conscientious steward of all resources, living and non-living.
I will seek to better understand ecological interconnectivity (both in natural and social contexts).
I will deliberately apply regenerative permaculture practices on our land.
I will seek deeper understanding of God’s purpose for my life.
I will connect daily with others of the Christian faith.
