How was your holidays? I know that New Year's Eve and Day is all about reflection and goal setting. I spent that time transitioning from one email client to another. I had one moment where I thought I might have lost all of my saved emails in the older client. But thanks to all the helpful Linux folks, I managed to save them. Then came the task of sorting through 17,000 emails saved from the last 7 years. I sure wish I had emptied out that trash can once in a while because a majority of it was just that. Anyway, it somehow seems like an appropriate activity to look at what I was talking about and doing over those years.
I was going to write this rather melancholy post about life. We all have dreams, aspirations, goals, expectations. What do you do when those things go unfulfilled? I don't know. Set new goals? Life never turns out as you expect and when you have been in a holding pattern for so long, it's hard to know what to do next. Life has been good and I have done some awesome things while I've been waiting. I'm still sorting the next phase of life out. I don't know what comes next and what goals to set. In the mean time, I'm doing my usual New Year's Day activity. Balancing my checkbook and business ledgers. Sounds exciting, right?!
