Dear Reader,
This is continuation of my year plan/report thread. I had similar plan for 2010 and for 2011. Completion of 2010 list was almost 100% successful, and completion of 2011 was much difficult and not so successful, but 2011 brought many life turning events and decisions.
I’m frustrated to admit that my head doesn’t carry this phrase all the time:
Remember, life is limited in time, so if I don’t move in the right direction I will waste it entirely. 
Here below is my resolution list for 2012
  1. Buy a car in Europe (some used German car)
  2. Travel though major cities in Austria (Vienna, Salzburg, Linz, Graz, Innsbruck, Bregenz, Eisenstadt, Klagenfurt)
  3. Sport activities (have two-three summer hikes into the Alps & ski in the Alps)
  4. Learn German for at A2 level (which is elementary)
  5. Improve English and rich C1 level (which is advanced)
  6. Show kick-ass performance at work
  7. Get promotion (or get clear idea on career opportunities, if not possible)
  8. In Vienna find local .net community (user group, whatsoever) and join
  9. Visit TechEd Europe or NDC2012 (if possible because of budged considerations)
  10. Have new friends in Austria, who share same opinions
  11. Write couple of WP7 applications and post them to marketplace
  12. Write couple of Win8Metro applications for fun
  13. Release “Design Patterns” Book – I have 1 month to do so
  14. Read 15 books (see my LinkedIn reading list)
  15. Learn programming language(s). I will start with “7 languages in 7 weeks” and then pick up one for deeper insight (not compulsory from book)
  16. Discipline myself to get up at some certain time
  17. Have more public visibility and community impact – my way to MVP
My next annual report should contain evidence in facts to prove completion of above resolution. This resolution is bit smaller than 2011’s one, but as reality shows it should be more achievable because of this.
Please share your year resolution list! I will read with pleasure.
