YEAR OF 2019

Joel Osteen

Rich Geib's 2019 New Year's Resolutions!

What should I do? Where to go? How to live?

  • Keep up the intense reading.

    Last year was a total success: keep this up. "Turn off your smartphone and read one more book per week." Amen!

  • Use the expensive rowing machine that you own and is in your house!

    Rediscover your music playlists, get the adrenaline flowing again, and start seriously sweating in at home workouts.

  • Compete against better tennis players, and lose to them.

    But get better yourself in the process, and learn what it takes to win at that level.

  • Jula workouts: she is growing up, so help her take it to the next level.

    HIIT, spin classes; and "Boogey Nights" 5km runs with Mary J. and her daughter.

  • Do a ride-along with VPD.

    Ask those handful of questions only they can answer; regular practice and Florida license.

  • Chromebook

    Assimilate the new chromebook into the smartphone, tablet, chromebook, and desktop computer lineup, from light to heavy computing needs. Buy an external monitor?

  • Make a will.

    Just do it finally.

Here is the reading lineup at this time:

    • "The Stranger Beside Me: The Shocking True Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy," by Ann Rule
