2015

Jan 2016

While there’s nothing special about the arbitrary time frame of a year it provides a good time to do long-term reflection and goal-setting. 2015 has been a great year. What I’m most proud of is building a solid exercise routine, reading 40 books, becoming confident in public speaking and improving nutrition significantly. Every year, I strive to make it better than the last, which has been successful for the past 5 years. These numbers, of course, only capture a small part of the story. The number or percentage change in parenthesis is compared to last year.
