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 obvious 2021 highlight was the arrival of our son. I think becoming a parent combined 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 to learn how to sustain an online conversation. From a macro perspective, I firmly believe that email newsletters and old school 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 the framework to be helpful.


If you're not sure not to focus on, here's an invitation to pause and reflect :


[ take 30 seconds ]

What's felt good for you in 2021?

What do you hope for in 2022?

Where will you put your energy?




Regardless of where things evolve,
I wish you joy, nimbleness, and agility.



Happy new year!
