Why am I making no resolutions this year? Because I never fail to break them.

But, here’s the paradox: Since a resolution was made to NOT make resolutions, that resolution will be broken, meaning that I will end up making other resolutions, all of which will be broken, as well.

Confused? Me, too.

“Must….have… Mountain….. Dew!”

This year, rather than concocting resolutions for getting wood stuff done, I am making a list…and checking it twice! Or was that cutting it twice? I’m confused…more clamps? What…..???

The list outlines the top projects I wish to get accomplished this year, complete with a reasonable timeline in which to do them, based on estimated shop time availability.

The list is attached to an HTOZ-approved clipboard and hung in a prominent place on the handsawgeek workshop wall. Right above the tool shelves.

The list consists of a nice mix of various projects: Small furniture pieces, 2015’s Christmas gifts, shop fixtures, and tool restorations.

Alongside this are a couple of other short lists: One for needed (?) tool purchases, and another for enhancements of the handsawgeek workshop skill set.

I am just plain giddy with excitement that this plan will work way better than any number of ridiculous resolutions that could be made.

I anticipate seeing a lot of checked check-boxes by end of year.
Time will tell.

We are not at the end of the first month of this year. How goes the list. Have you been staying the course? :)

Absolutely, Paul! I’m on the track to getting that lathe stand finished this weekend. Just a couple more fine details to attend to.
