Three months left in 2014. The days seem to speed up the more meetings are scheduled, the more plane tickets are booked and the more weekend getaways are lusted after. Now, I’ve never done this before, but I wanted to see how I was logging against my resolutions for the year, so I pulled them up:

1. Never take anything for granted. Never let the chip come off your shoulder. Work harder… and smarter. But mostly harder.
2. Make time for the people that matter.
3. Eat paleo as often as possible.
4. Read more. Write more. Hoop more.
5. Cook more. Smile more. Criticize less.
6. Get better at confrontation & saying no, both in my personal and professional life.
7. Tackle projects with efficiency, productivity & results in mind.
8. When in doubt, refer to this.
9. Run a marathon.
10. Follow through.

Surprisingly, it’s not eating paleo & running a marathon are the two that truly have yet to be fulfilled. So… guess what? I’m on that LeBron diet from October onwards. Let’s do the damn thing.

midnight oil

the wick in my midnight oil runs on empty
this relentless drive, passion, sense of urgency
only really fueled by a lack of reality.
lack of knowing.
lack of understanding anything other than
this relentless drive, passion, sense of urgency.
the wick on my midnight oil runs empty
but i keep running.

10 Old Fashioned Dating Habits We Should Make Cool Again

1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.
2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.
3. Bringing flowers or other tokens of affection to the first date.
4. Going dancing that’s not grinding on a grimy club floor.
5. Straightforwardly asking someone out and not calling it “hanging out.”
6. Additionally, being clear about when you’re “going steady.”
7. Romantic gestures like writing poems.
8. Turning electronics off and just being with one another.
9. The general concept of asking permission for things.
10. Not assuming sex is to be had at any point in time.
