Write them down. Or else another year will go by and you'll still have to squint to read the fine print. Here are mine, in no particular order.
-Don't stop with the first right answer, unless it's right.
-Put more people on the spot more often.
-Dance like nobody's watching. Huh? Do I look like Cameron Diaz in every movie she's been in? Dancing alone in the kitchen to top 40 fare while slumming it in a tank top and undies? What's the fun in that. Dance in the middle of the mall. Probably get money tossed at you, too. Double whammy.
-Get a '79 Trans Fat Am.
-Make buddy comedy with the drive thru woman at McDonald's. And by 'buddy comedy' I mean brown chicken brown cow.
-Teach a child how to read. If it proves to difficult, just buy 'em a comic.
-Speaking of comics, I should sell some of mine.
-Continue efforts in the 'take nothing personally' campaign.
-Make 15 short films. Get into a few fests.
-Wear more shirts that fit.
-Don't listen to anybody. Listen to everybody.
-Come up with sayings that contradict themselves. And don't.
-Make sense out of it.
-Think long term.
-If things aren't black and white, make them.
And to coin some phrases from one of my favorite books I read in '09, 'A Whole New Mind' by Dan Pink:
-Normal is not good.
-Never say 'I could have done that' because you didn't.
