17 Genealogy Resolutions for 2017

  1. Never make New Year's resolutions.
  2. Endeavour to "do better" in all areas. Remember that even a tiny nudge forward is a step in the right direction. No matter how long it takes, you always have to traverse the entire distance to get to the end of the road.
  3. Complete my NIGS certifications in time to graduate in 2017, as planned.
  4. Start ProGren Study group.
  5. Create more Zazzle store items. AKA continue investigating and establishing complementary additional revenue streams.
  6. Organize and optimize my genea-office and files.
  7. Update and catalogue my genea-library.
  8. Focus on improving my time management versus physical and mental health issues, particularly my social media posting schedule and responding to DNA match inquiries.
  9. Be more social, in general - and not just online.
  10. Decide and take action, if applicable, whether to begin work on an application to become certified through the BCG.
  11. Make plans and arrangements to attend at least one international genealogy conference in 2018.
  12. Read more genea-blogs daily.
  13. Purchase DNA test kits for at least three more family members.
  14. Obtain a better understanding of genetic genealogy. Devote time to reading through the ISOGG website.
  15. Sit down to pick the brains of my younger cousins to come up with ideas about getting youth more interested in genealogy.
  16. Make progress toward the completion of at least one Christmas traditions photo/book project (ie, favourite family recipes or beloved ornaments and decorations).
  17. Make progress on a business and/or website design plan, to launch in 2018.
