Now (2016 Resolution)

Over the weekend I tried putting together a post about New Year’s Resolutions or goals for the coming year. But I never really got past the self-reflection part. I have some measurable goals for work, but all in all I’m incredibly happy with how my life is shaping and I don’t really ‘resolve’ much of anything.

Resolve to keep doing what I’m doing I suppose?

I’ve got a lot to learn, but I feel like my biggest issues are all things I’ve already been tackling for months, so the new year has no bearing on it at all.

With that in mind, I quit working on the resolutions post. Instead, I did another update I’ve been meaning to add for a some time. Derek Sivers is one of my favorite role models, and he started a movement he’s calling “NowNowNow.” The movement is the idea that websites should have a “Now” page.

If a contact page is where I learn how to reach you, and an about page is where I understand your history/context, the now page is where I learn what’s important to you right now in this phase of your life/business/project.

Maybe we were close friends in high school but haven’t spoken for years: you don’t really need my About page, you know who I am. But my Now page would be really helpful if you wanted to check in on me.

Since that self-reckoning is as far as I got in my resolutions, I basically turned all that stuff into my new Now page. It’s up there in the menu and I’ll keep it updated with what my focuses are for this stage of life.

2016 Resolution: Keep “Now” updated?
