New year's resolutions for 2019
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:27:01 AM »
1. Eat less sugar, try to avoid it if possible.
2. Try to make some songs or demos at least (more like record and mix them, I have some songs ready in my head).
3. Release Teemu 1.3.
4. Finish modular design of Kaduria's source code.
5. Watch less random youtube videos.
6.  Try to improve posture by not slouching.

I was just talking with people on Unity forums about how our Youtube watching is getting out of control.
So many good things there over the last 2 years.

I usually make some really outlandish plans to push myself, but not this year.
I suppose last year went pretty well so I just want to keep that momentum going.

I have the usual plan of beating 3 new roguelikes of reasonable length.
I'm hoping I can make one of those Rogue, but I've been slacking on that one.
I also have a game I need to finish developing and publish too. I want it done this year.
And then some of the typical fitness resolutions that usually fall through the cracks.

I can relate to the youtube problem too. It's been a bad habit for a while now.
Though I think I've started losing more time to Cataclysm than anything at this point.

I'm watching YT mainly because I don't have friends and I'm lonely (in a way). I'm substituting real relationships with virtual people.

I think I've already failed all things. Maybe you should make resolutions that are bad, then you can't keep them.

:)

I never make resolutions.

I am currently slouching.

Most of this year has gone pretty poorly as far as resolutions go, as usual.
But I got my 3 roguelikes beaten: Rogue of 5, Zorbus, and Brogue.
Rogue of 5 felt kind of short-ish, but close enough to count.
I will probably do more later in the year anyway.

I think a good resolution tends to be more quantitative than qualitative.
Also I think positive goals work better than negative ones.
Like "Do X" is better than "Don't do Y", since procrastination isn't failure.
Though that's not always an option.
