102: New Year

Here are some end of year reflections.

And a simple goal-setting process.

2021 review

Last year, I wrote some notes-to-self :

  • Invest patiently
  • Honor the caregivers
  • Start, don't wait

My personal 2021 highlight was the arrival of our son. For me, becoming a parent ended up combining these three themes together.

In one cute, squawking little bundle.

The other high point was Fire Jar 100.

It's been a privilege to connect with people and figure out how to sustain an online conversation. From a macro perspective, I firmly believe that email newsletters and personal blogs are more vibrant and relevant today than ever before.

If you're thinking of starting your own, I'd love to support your efforts!

A goal-setting process

A few months back, I asked a friend to explain his goal-setting process.

I've found his framework to be helpful.

If you're not sure not to focus on, pause and reflect right now :

What's felt good in 2021?

What do you hope for in 2022?

Where will you put your energy?

Regardless of where this next year evolves, I wish you joy, nimbleness, and agility.

Happy new year!
