No, I haven’t decided to start providing financial advice but I have been looking at lots of whiteboards, plans and proposals lately. The benefit is that pays for gear, books and the occasional workshop… It just doesn’t provide time.
Another Xmas done, leaving full stomachs, fridges and bins yet as I get older, memories of missing family temper the joy.
It felt like I made less progress this year and I guess that’s because I dropped the idea of using projects that I could measure against. There were also a lot of expectations that finishing my studies would see an immediate impact, when in fact there were a number of more important things to do with that free time.
Sometimes it seems Christmas is more about what we want, rather than appreciating what we have or understanding what we truly need. Three years ago I set up this blog to fulfil a want and for the most part I have done that. I suppose I’m questioning if that took care of the need and if I am getting the most out of what I have.
The answer to that is not a New Year’s resolution. It’s simply an ongoing commitment to get better at my craft and keep pushing myself into unknown territory.
