2015 is the year the bear comes out of his cave.
After a year of hedonistic hibernation in New Year, the great beyond beckons once more.
As is tradition, I’m posting my new year’s resolutions. I do this publicly to make me accountable for my actions-even if I don’t always tick all the boxes. I suggest you do the same. If you have a blog, post ’em up. If you don’t, do it on Facebook. Trust me—a little bit of external pressure is a good motivator!
But first, how did I fare concerning last year’s resolutions? To remind you they were:
- Continue living in New York City.
- Work on building my passive income.
- Focus on quality women, abandon sex goals with numbers.
- Take up martial arts.
So how did I do?
- Check. I successfully got my graduate visa and as I write this, I’m still living it up in NYC!
- Half-check. My progress is a little slower than planned, but nonetheless, I’m about half way through my guide book on NYC and also have 7 chapters written for the sequel to Naughty Nomad. The former should be released later this year and the latter 2016.
- Check. I genuinely have stopped the counting game. This has caused the strangest thing to happen—I developed meaningful, loving relationships. The kind of ones where we can go out for dinner and a movie…and even invite other females into our bed. Such arrangements have made me realize that even after living the playboy lifestyle, I’m still capable of pair bonding and feeling genuinely happy with the right chick. *Pukes a little.*
- Check. I took up Krav Maga and Brazilian Jujitsu (BJJ).
Here are my goals for 2015.
1. Travel to at least 7 countries.
7 countries. Usually, I would be more ambitious and say 10-12 countries, but my summer is still up in the air. I’m due to leave NYC in late April, but if granted a six months extension, I won’t be travelling until late Fall. My destination? More than likely Central America or the lesser Antilles. I’m not ruling out South America, either.
If I hit 7 countries, I’ll officially be in triple digits and have visited half the countries in the world!
2. Release My NYC Guidebook.
If you take the amount of money I’ve spent on beer researching bars and venues in the city, this book will make undoubtedly make a net loss. But nonetheless, I feel compelled to share my valuable knowledge with the men of this world. It will contain advice on women, game, nightlife guides, tons of classified info, and of course, they’ll be plenty of stories to be shared, too. T’will be mandatory reading for any man visiting or moving to the city. Watch this space!
3. Get certified to sail bareboat.
After sailing the Hudson and getting my Keelboat cert, I want to take my skills to the next level. Having a Bareboat cert will allow me to charter a vessel anywhere in the world. More than likely I’ll probably do the course down in Miami close to the end of my stay in New York. Avast, me hearties!
4. Lift Very Heavy Things.
Martial arts and a busy lifestyle have impacted on lifting this year, despite the fact I reached my 1 year goals in March. This year, my goals are simple:
1. Squat 300lbs
2. Deadlift 400lbs
This is ambitious for a guy my size, but fuck it. I might as well aim high. I’ll be sure to do a post on my progress in the Spring.
