I love the start of a new year. For me, it’s always been another chance to get things right. Or in some cases to keep the streak going from a good year before.
Even with all the craziness going on in the world last year, 2015 was good to me. I lost a big client, gained a bigger client, traveled a bit for work, made some good money…overall, I can’t complain. But if there’s one word I’d use to describe the year as a whole, it would be work.
Like…so much work. I pulled all nighters, worked weekends back-to-back for months, and even created more work for myself at times when I felt I needed more to do. 2015 was definitely the year I reached the upper bounds of my work ethic threshold. I think it paid off for me professionally, but personally?
