For the past few years I’ve used the same IntimiDATER Resolutions with just one update added in 2014. Go ahead and check that out. I stand by it as it has stood the test of time.
For 2017, I’ve added a fitness component. Of course, I added video to share these innovative concepts of fitness goal measurement and motivation. You’re welcome.

My request this year is of a unique nature. I was going to ask you to have the elves in IT put together a subset of your master list, with the following:
Let’s face it, sometimes one date isn’t enough. If you really want to increases your chances in this dating game, you’ve got to maximize your opportunities. Yup, I recently had five dates in one night, and you should consider doing the same thing.
Hold on. This isn’t some crazy Tinder, swipe-fest story. Those are better left to my fictional alter-ego, The IntimiDATER. This is really a story about my philosophy of a great way to spend time with ONE person that you’re interested in. I’ve previously referred to the perfect date as a “walk” and this is really the same thing.
The world of dating has certainly changed. We live in the realities of the online dating paradigm. This world offers some amazing benefits to people looking for love, or other, less romantic pursuits. You have access to a massive audience outside of your work and social circles. This can be a great thing. Unfortunately, some negative side-effects seem to be happening, that I will evaluate, with the goal being to encourage us all to Date Better.
It’s not often that you get a chance to share an important first experience with a man, but you are all witness to my first opening of my laptop to “work” in a Starbuck’s, or any coffee shop for that matter. It’s not my first time physically entering a Starbuck’s. I’ve passed through and I’ve always wondered what all of these people were doing with their inherently hydrophobic computers purposefully placed next to paper cups filled with liquid. These people are always here, at all times of the day and night. It’s as if they have no jobs or homes to go to. Now I’m one of those people that people like me wonder about.
If you’ve been paying attention to any of my social media channels this past week, you’ve probably noticed a theme. I’ve been taking selfies using the Lumia 1020, of my and my Lumia 920. The 920 display shows a picture that is always the “prop” . I always used language as though each image was showing an “app” that should be available for Windows Phone.
It all started with this picture of me sleeping with a “teddy bear”, that I entered into a selfie w/ phone contest run by www.winphan.net. Alas, the contest was a random drawing and not for having a creative, well-executed shot. I didn’t win, but I got inspired take more. Let’s see what I came up with!
A lot of you guys are still single and frankly, I don’t need the competition. We need to get some of you pair bonded, post-haste. I’m not sure if you paid attention when I dropped the Top 10 Single Resolutions for the 2011 New Year’s season, but go ahead and catch up because ALL 11 of those Top 10, still apply. I’ve just added a few to the mix.
Before we get to that, let’s talk about resolutions or whatever you want to call them: visions, intentions, plans…they’re all the same thing. Anyway, why do we constantly set ourselves up for failure? Throw in a few gimmes and you’ll feel better about yourself. I resolve not to make people feel guilty about the fact that they aren’t running a marathon, so I will refrain from running a marathon this year. DONE. I resolve to support the good people who own and work at micro-breweries. COUNT ON IT. I resolve to do my part in solving state problems. For example, prison over-crowding is a problem and I resolve to prevent my temper from adding another number to the system. PERFECT.
OK, let’s jump into these additions to the list of single resolutions!
My mission: To put my #NoExcuses manta to work. Last week, I wrote some mini-short scripts and now I wanted to shoot them. I was having trouble scheduling with anybody to help me, so I picked one that I thought that I could shoot on my own and I just decided to do it today.
It took a good portion of my afternoon, but I like how it turned out. I was able to show off the Nokia Lumia 1020’s HD capability. I was also able to (hopefully) show a bit of the funny that exists in my head. Most of all, I just got something done and that is so important in creating the habit of creating.
OK, let’s jump into it. I’ll give a few tips along the way…
Not every job in front of the camera is acting…just ask anyone who’s seen a movie starring Kristen Stewart! I kid….I kid!
Besides actors, your screens are also graced with hosts delivering various content to you, on every screen that you own. As much as I’m known as a “funny guy”, my most-seen work in the biz, is as a host on America’s Minority Health Network (www.amhntv.com). AMHN plays in doctors’ waiting rooms across the country.
I know, I know…”hosting” sounds glamorous, right? Well, read on my friends. Oh…there’s video too.
With the passing of Dick Clark we lost a monumental force in the music world. One of the gifts that he left us was his quotable saying that “Music is the soundtrack of your life”. I’ve always liked that quote and I think I’m going to make that way of thinking a regular part of this blog.
What I’ll do is pick a couple of songs and then give a little commentary on it and how it applies as the soundtrack of my life. That commentary could be funny or poignant. Let’s get started with the first DalyDose of…The Soundtrack Of Your Life.
