Another year ends, and it’s time for an accounting.
I practiced patience, empathy, and compassion more often and more consistently.
I massively improved my ability (and willingness) to listen.
I spent more time with my family (but this goes in the debit column too, since it wasn’t enough).
I helped more people succeed and overcome their challenges.
I exercised more consistently than I have in many years.
I worked harder to improve my writing and my speaking.
I got much better at saying no to small things to make room for bigger things.
I gave more to the charities that I support.
I trademarked my L4VC™ methodology and started the process on my Building Consensus methodology.
I wrote and posted here every day, marking 5 uninterrupted years, with the exception of the 13 days I spent in Tibet in 2010.
I formed a mastermind group with 5 other hustlers and learned from each of them.
I let work get in the way of publishing my 1st book and two programs I could have launched in 2014.
I moved too slowly and missed some opportunities.
I was too often distracted, and sometimes overwhelmed with work. Mostly unnecessarily.
I ignored two areas of my life that I still need to improve.
I still spent too little time with family.
I spent too little time with my friends.
I didn’t read nearly as much as I need to.
I missed many opportunities for down time and time to reflect.
