Last year I decided to do a year-end retrospective. It was short and to the point. I still like the idea of summarizing the year, and I still like the idea of doing so concisely, so here’s what I want to say about 2011: it was better than some years and worse than others.
I accomplished some of the personal and professional goals I’d set for myself, but there are some others that are yet incomplete, so I have some things to strive towards in the coming year. I made progress on some fronts and had setbacks– some self-inflicted, some not– in others.
I have a lot to work on in the coming year.
America’s 1st Sergeant sums it up nicely with this post on the concept of initium. I have a number of personal, professional, and life initiatives underway that I hope will bear fruit in 2012. If they don’t, it won’t be due to lack of initiative or effort on my part.
Thanks to all my family and friends for their support and help during the past year, and here’s wishing all who read this a prosperous, safe, and happy 2012!
