Health, family and happiness
I’ve had an incredible year reconnecting with old friends and making news ones, both online and in person. I wish I could have been out to more conferences this year, but I plan to fix this in 2012. Let’s meet in person if we haven’t already.
Nashville continues to rock!
The Nashville technology community continues to make me proud each year. Watching the energy and innovation bursting from the Entrepreneur Center has been a joy.
I’m excited to become an official mentor at Jumpstart Foundry this year, helping new startups with marketing and promotional guidance. I’ll also be contributing to their blog and podcast again soon too.
Time and what’s important
The one thing technology hasn’t produced, that we’ve all been anxiously waiting for, is a time machine. Time is the one thing that technology can’t help us with, in fact, time seems to go faster because of it.
2012 for me is going to be about focusing on what’s most important in my life. Health, family and happiness.
I learned in 2011 that it’s easier than you think to lose weight and get healthy, but it takes stamina to keep the routine in practice. Health should be crucial in your life, because without it, you won’t have one.
Family is obvious, but I think often neglected for other things. It’s important that we focus on ourselves and what makes us happy, but don’t end up the subject of a Harry Chapin song.
In fact, if you have young children read this John Gruber post right now.
We all have limited time on earth, so be sure to make the best of it. Be thankful for what you have. Try to make it a better place.
Now get ready to get out there and kick 2012’s ass, because it’s going to be 2013 before you know it.
