The Big 50

  Today is my 50th birthday.  This journal is a record and a tool for what I see as a year of transition.  My health is "mostly" back under my own control.  The hole in my heart is patched and I know how to manage everything else.

The following are my goals and tools (in no particular order of importance):

1) Improve my diet AND drink more water.
2) Get moving.
3) Get involved.
4) Curtail implusive spending and pay off debt.
5) Simplify my surrounding (de-clutter).  Purge my home and office.
6) Define/redefine my relationships: family, friends, partner
7) Update my technical skills and training.
8) Replace my car (evaluate and purchase a high efficiency or green vehicle).
