New Year’s Resolutions

I don’t really make New Year’s Resolutions. I try to make each day as meaningful as any other. But I’ve noticed recent changes in my life that have been deleterious to my progress and personality core that I want to correct. So despite the fact that that any arbitrary day is just as good as any other, here are my New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Stop blaming.
      It used to be what I was known for, but between website/Kickstarter work and other time sinks, I lost a lot of playtime and skill, and have found it difficult to climb. Some of this is definitely due to a worse attitude.
  2. Reclaim D1 and achieve ‘Best Skarner NA’ status again.
  3. Play at least 5 champions at the low-D1 level — probably Vi, Olaf, Nocturne, Fiddlesticks, Zac
  4. Stream even when not comfortable with current play. I have a tendency to not stream recently because my skill level has dropped. But if people watched my stream just for skill level, they’d be on a pro player’s stream.
  5. Get Funk Overload (or another 5s team) to D1.
  6. Devote more time to coaching (details here).
  7. More videos to go with articles; not everybody wants to read all of the time.
  8. Find a casting partner and cast more games.
  9. Less time getting distracted on the internet. Reddit and Facebook don’t need me.
  10. More work on my creative content website.
