    My New Years resolution is to live in the same place for an entire year and ride it out with as little drama as possible. I'm sick of moving.

    My New Years resolution last year was to work my arse off. I got a 22% raise for my efforts.

    LOL... i never liked these silly resolutions... i wonder where the tradition comes from... Every year, though, i usually make at least one... i made one last year, to be stronger with the things i believe(d) in than the year before... i did just that...

    For '04, i resolve to get my sh_t together... Maybe move (definitely, oh please, i hope!); find a better job, something that pays me a respectable amount of money...

    - go to the FCA Nationals
    - track the car

    1. Get an F-car.(Dependant on number 2)
    2.Get more consultation jobs.
    3.Work out more.

    I've never really made any resolutions before. I've set unrealistic goals for myself before so I guess they're pretty similar. :D

    Regards and Happy New Year,
    -Casey

    My resolution is the same every year --to just be as good of a person I can be.

    However this year I might tack on another goal. I think Im going to come out of this year with a Ferrari! Maybe a little optimistic though :)

    My goals with my new Stradale are to reach the warranty's mileage limit before I reach the time limit... and to have at least 1/3 of those miles track miles.

    So, for 2004:
    1) Get a good start on wearing out my Stradale.
    2) Attend FCA2004... and drive Laguna Seca for the first time.
    3) Attend FQFC... and see if I can break the Bourbon Street speed record. ;)
    4) Become a fixture at MotorSport Ranch.
    5) And a regular at TWS.
    6) And drive Hallet, Barber, and TMS.

    Well, that's the Ferrari-related stuff... I, of course, have many other more important resolutions... stuff of great interest to my family, but a bit off topic here.


    Happy new year to all... may 2004 be each of your best year yet!!

    Brian

    Des,
    I'm with you on the fact that I also kept my goals or "resolutions".

    And to everyone else that has posted on this thread,
    Last year I made some very strong resolutions. I kept every one of them (well the important ones). This may be a very womanly thing to say but I'll do it because I am a woman.
    No matter who you are, where you live, or what you do for a living, don't ever let anyone tell you that you cannot do something or succeed at something you want. I have had those people in my life and then I have had the ones that will support me in whatever I choose to achieve. Those are the keepers and because of them I did succeed. I will drink to you tonight. Thank You.

    With the exception of #5 and #7, those have to be the most realistically accomplishable (is that a word?) goals yet!

    Im just starting school and will be in for 6 years and broke as a mother****er until they day I am done, plus some. So, the word Ferrari wont appear on my list. Hmmm I don't even have a list.

    Except for 5, 7 and possibly 2 you should be able to achieve all your goals. :)

    I think my goal will be to rid myself of all credit card debt by year's end. This will be a major accomplishment as I have a wife who is thwarting my efforts.

    Pete, I too have a high maintenance wife (who won't buy any clothing unless it says Bebe, Louis Vitone, Via Spiga, etc) but she is a drug rep and makes great $, so I can't really complain. This year I managed to pay off 2 credit cards, my Ferrari and bought my wife new breasteses, thanks to a great year at my business. Believe me, it feels great to pay that crap off.

    West662, When I was in school, I was broke too and for a long time after. Just but your nose to the grindstone, work hard and keep the dream alive. You will have your Ferrari.

    Damn, thats a nice picture. The color looks really sharp. Those have to be my favorite Ferrari wheels of all time (are they BBS?). Will you get the car striped?



    Branko - I have pretty much accepted the fact I will be broke for a while! but like you said, I just gotta stick with it and one day I will have my car. It mind sound cheesy, but since I have been posting and viewing on this board, I have been much more motivated educational wise. Hearing stories and seeing pictures of chatters first Ferraris and other awesome cars really helps me maintain focus of my future goals. Years down the road I will be on this board with my own 'First Ferrari' story......guaranteed! :)

    Good for you,girliegirl. One of the best sayings I ever heard came from the cheesy late night infomercial guy Don Lapre who said "never listen to anyone who isn't doing better than you". So simple yet so poignant. That has been my litmus test in life because no matter what you do some fool will always sneer at you and say "what are you doing that for?". As far as strong women, I married one and am raising one so I know all about it. My wife and daughter were set to drive to New York City the other day when I heard the terror alert had been raised to orange. At the front door, I told my wife "I forbid you guys to go to NYC". I told her again in the driveway and then again as they pulled out of the driveway. Oh well. (LOL)
