    1. To play and sing at a nursing home at least once a month.
    2. To be more conscious of varying the "dynamics" in my playing (louder vs. softer; faster vs. slower), instead of giving in to the natural tendency to be "full throttle" all the time.
    3. To be thankful every day for the gift of music, and for having been blessed with at least a little bit of the ability to make it happen with this little four-stringed instrument.
    4. See Kerneltime's Item #4.

    Be better than I was last year.
    Maybe, combine with my other instruments, (when I record).
    But mainly, just enjoy myself!

    Happy New Year.

    No goals. Just enjoy playing when I want to.

    My goal will be to learn more techniques to spice things up. Work more on intros and outros. Become better at picking and strumming combinations. I also want to work on my whole package, not just the ukulele playing, but my singing and my stage presence. Learn more about amps and my electronics. Most of all, I repeat, most of all, I want to avoid becoming obsessed with the insignificant. I want to keep myself from falling into a rabbit hole and spending an inordinate amount of time pursuing some insignificant aspect of the ukulele that has absolutely no impact or results in no benefit on what I'm doing. I did that a lot in 2018, and it is time I will never get back that I could have spent achieving the goals that I've set for 2019.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.
