Every year I like to take a look back at the year to see how things went and reflect on the successes and shortcomings. Overall 2015 was a great year and I am very thankful.
Recently two guys who run large companies blogged separately about topics related to their companies. I respect both of these guys and loved reading these posts because they resonated with two choices I’ve made that changed my life.
My wife inspires me. She has the kind of personality that when she starts something she’s going to finish it. In 2009 she decided to run a marathon and she woke up several times a week to run several miles around our neighborhood. One day a week she woke up super early and drove to another part of town before dawn to join a running club on super long runs.
Back in January of this year I published “Ship or STFU” where I talked about the regret that comes with wanting to work on a side project, but not choosing to have enough time to do it. I shared how my wife had grown tired of hearing me talk about things I was going to do and how I set a deadline (End of February) where if I didn’t have them done I would no longer talk about them.
I did stop talking about them after February, but I’ve also shipped a few. Here’s an update!
