A couple weeks ago, I realized that I had a really hard time following through on things. There's a lot of things I want to do, but I'm terrible at sticking to a schedule and meeting goals. Here's just a sampling of things I'd like to do:
  • Exercise regularly
  • Write regularly
  • Regular morning prayers
  • Wash dishes regularly instead of letting them build up
  • Learn Spanish
  • Learn guitar
  • ...and several other things I can't think of at the moment.
My current goal is to become better at keeping goals.

I decided to start with something easy: a regular exercise program. Coincidentally, Lifehacker just featured a website completely devoted to helping people get into a push-up routine. Theoretically, if you follow the program, you'll end up doing 100 consecutive push-ups after six weeks.

That's my first step. Other goals will follow.

I can teach you how to play the guitar, if you want.

I'll probably take you up on that offer sometime, but I'd have to get a guitar first. :) It's a little lower on my list.
