Last Post of 2008

It’s New Year’s Eve, and while I’m not the type to make resolutions, today does provide an opportunity to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next.

Simplification was one of my priorities in 2008. In general, I try to live relatively minimally. However, it does require a concentrated effort to identify those things which are unnecessary or inefficient. I eliminated many sources of both mental and physical clutter, which allows me to focus on things that truly matter.

My engineering background, combined with a general curiosity, causes me to constantly brainstorm new ideas. At times, this can be overwhelming, if not tempered by a degree of focus. Thankfully, I’ve been able to maintain focus and have made steady progress on the projects I’m undertaking.

I intend to carry this momentum forward into the new year. With continued determination, and a little luck, 2009 should present some exciting opportunities.

Thank you to my family and friends, both new and old. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
