What challenge for 2015?

Well, I cannot believe that it has been two years since I restarted this blog.  I know I was a little slack in updating it last year, but that is one of the things that I plan to fix this year.  Publish more!

So rather than do the usual 'resolutions' for the new year, I am going to set myself some challenges, and make them public so that there is some accountability out there.  Here goes:

Challenge 1: Read more books - real paper books.  Dig into some classic literature, as well as revisit some of my old fantasy genre collections and enjoy holding real paper in my hands and visiting other worlds in my head.

Challenge 2: Set up multiple passive income streams via the various app stores.  Get enough apps out there and selling at a steady rate so that I can have an income stream to meet the basic bills.

Challenge 3: As part of (2) above, I am going to try and write and release at least one app per month in 2015.  My objective is to release several into the wild and see if any take off.

Challenge 4: Write an eBook.  About my experience as a 'lone wolf' programmer.  I have been through the ups and downs for three decades now, so hopefully my experiences will be of use as a learning tool for another up and coming 'lone wolf'.  This is also a part of (2) above.

Challenge 5: Reconnect with friends again.  In the past couple of years, I feel like I have drifted apart from many close friends.  I need to step up and take an active role in re-engaging with old friends and enjoying their friendships again.

Game on.
