Number one – Eat more dip
Belle and I were eating some beetroot and mint dip a few days ago, after a Christmas diet consisting mainly of rose creams and that cheese with the bits of apricot in, and we were really enjoying it.
“We should eat more dip,” I said.
Belle, munching loudly on a piece of cucumber, agreed.
“When I came home from school,” she said, “instead of having some brioche, I could eat dip. We could start off with something simple like mint, and then work out way up to more adventurous things.” She does likes a project.*
“Good idea,” I said. “Let’s eat more dip next year.”
Number two – Grow
This is something that has been on my mind for a few months now but that was crystallised by the arrival yesterday from America of a t-shirt, sent to me by one of my very favourite digital marketing bloggers, Mark Schaefer.**
Now I’m not looking obviously to grow physically, although the rose cream and apricot cheese diet has been doing that regardless, nor am I seeking spiritual growth, as everyone knows I have no morals and a heart of stone. No, 2014 is going to be the year I grow professionally, get over that British Guardian reader thing of being ashamed to want to make money, and make big things happen.
I have a t-shirt after all, so basically this time next year I am going to be a millionaire.
It was as though international postal services were conspiring to drive home a message – that I need to quit being a busy fool, commit some plans to paper, and make this a year to be proud off.
So there you have it. Become a millionaire and eat more dips.
