Eight months ago, I was doing the same thing many people do when a new year rolls in. I was casting vision for the new year and creating a number of goals for myself. I had rather grand aspirations. I was going to read one book per week. I was going to shoot (and post to my Tumblr account) one iPhone photo a day. I was going to do more personal projects. I was going to write at least one blog post per week. I was going to learn Spanish. I was going to exercise more.
Then life happened.
