Just Keep Swimming!

It’s just after midnight January 1st, 2010.  Happy New Year everyone! Although it won’t be NOW for another 12 hours back in the U.S. So, at the very start of the New Year, I am already ahead of the game! 🙂

Last year I made rather a long list of goals for 2009 and attempted most, accomplished at least half and a few found their way to the corner of my dusty to-do room.  But overall, I’m happy with the results and my resolution resolution. 🙂

This year the list will be shorter. Yes, a stream-lined, aerodynamic list of resolutions, goals and promises to keep me moving in the direction I’d like to be moving in.

Goals for 2010

  1. Talk to my friends and family more.
  2. Eat and sleep better.
  3. Practice aikido kokyu exercises everyday, aikido technique everyday and expand training.
  4. Keep up the running and cycling.
  5. Take photos weekly.
  6. Make music daily.
  7. Be more organized.
  8. Be a nicer, better person.

I believe it was Confuscius who said around 500 BC  “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” In that regard I suppose man is like the shark, if ever we do stop swimming, we’ll die. Less shark-like and more Dory-like, onward into the new year I go! Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. Just keep swimming! 🙂



  1. 明けましておめでとうございます!!
