New Year Goals

There are a few things I would like to accomplish this year.
  • Game/Recreation Related
    • Play a game of Fiasco
    • DM a small campaign of Mouse Guard
    • Play the quick play game of Leverage RPG
    • Play Artemis
    • Play through Mass Effect 3
    • Play through Assassin's Creed: Revelations
    • Play through Assassin's Creed 3
    • Get all achievements on Dance Central 2 (requires help from someone else or a dance party)
    • Play through Dance Central 3
    • Collect all Riddler trophies in Batman: Arkham City
    • Paint my first mini (most likely board game related)
    • Play all of the games I own at least once or sell them off (what I have left unplayed: The Amazing Race game, Acquire, Anima: Shadow of Omega, Catch Phrase, Pumpkin King, Rook, Sorry Sliders)
  • House Related
    • Clean out the garage
    • Paint the hall
    • Redo the downstairs bathroom (involves buying a new tub and installing all the tile we have)
    • Install a Dishwasher
    • Remodel the kitchen (nothing expansive just: install some track lighting, open up the island, install pot rack,get a new faucet, dishwasher, reorganize cabinets, repaint cabinet doors)
    • Finish the bedroom (mostly Ikea closet pieces, installing curtains, and setting up a workspace for Emily)
    • Create a nursery/child's bedroom
    • Finish the upstairs bathroom (repaint the windowsill, glue down the door jam/floor connector thingy)
  • Well Being
    • Be in better shape (details needed)
    • Meditate Regularly
    • Have a healthy kid
    • Acquire more financial freedom
    • Open our Comic/Game/Geekery store
    • Read more books for fun
That's a lot of gaming goals, but I feel like the others are larger endeavors and thus more overwhelming.  The Well Being goals are probably too vague; there's not enough detail which it makes it harder to visualize accomplishing them.  Many of the house projects require money, so that complicates things.

Ideas on how to achieve some of this
  • Watch less TV (unless doing something else as well, like exercises, finances, going through boxes of stuff)
  • Play Facebook games less
  • No games until the evening, and
    • Daily chores done (1 load of dishes washed, 1 pile of clothes put away, occassional trash)
    • 1 Major project task completed (Finances, Home Remodel, Store)
    • this excludes dancing and fitness games
  • Start an exercise routine (mornings?, lunch break?, daily?, MWF?, run? gym? dance? videos?)
  • Sell off unused items (clothes, games, random household objects) through eBay
  • Reinstate weekly meetings (if it's for the store possibly include other willing/interested in helping)
  • Set aside time to help my mom start her real estate side business. Not sure what this would entirely entail, but I'm guessing doing some research would be part of it.
If you have any suggestions on other goals I've talked about but left out, or some ideas on how to help achieve any of these, feel free to post.
