What’s Your Plan for 2012?

Happy New Year

I know we are well into the new year already, but I still find myself thinking about things I want to accomplish this year, and how I’m going to make it all happen. 2011 was a fun and busy year for me, which is why posts on Tight Mix have dwindled a bit. I want to be able to find the time to blog more in 2012.

I also wanted to ask all of you — the musicians, industry hustlers, music fans, and tech nerds alike — what do you want to accomplish in 2012? Please leave a brief comment below so we can all riff back and forth to get each other pumped up before our (apparently) inevitable demise.

    This year, I want to accomplish a few things.

    • Transition into a full time position in the music biz (marketing and/or management).
    • Get coverage for my main client, Vinyl Thief, in 25 new, targeted press outlets.
    • Build a body of work that will benefit independent artists.
    • Squat 225 pounds and deadlift 300 pounds!

    There’s a great free eBook called “The Tower” that has helped me focus my plans for the year. Anyone interested can find it here: http://chrisguillebeau.com/3×5/the-tower. Hopefully, it’ll help others as much as it’s helped me!

    Chris, what do you hope to accomplish this year (besides more blog posts)?

    Continue what I love: songwriting and web communication… and improve as much as possible in both :-)

    And you have some awesome resolutions, too. Let me know if you want some book recommendations or some tips on Austin if you visit there! I have a few friends in Austin, and I had a blast on my trip there last Labor Day.
