It is hard to summarize an entire year in a blog so I won’t try. 2014 was a great in many ways, and difficult in others. Not much different than any past years I guess, except on the personal front, my family is making a huge transition. There is a lot of risk to us in what comes next but the reward can also be great. Isn’t that how it works for just about everything?
No matter what happens I know that 2015 will have its ups and downs, so I look forward to navigating those waters. When it comes right down to it, we all depend on what we have learned and the relationships that we have built over the years. These are the things that matter and are also the things that will define success and failure for us in pretty much anything we do. If this is the case I feel pretty good. I have made many mistakes and done some things right, but in either scenario I have learned a great deal. The friends I have inside this industry are what I value most, and have made all of the difference to me in my career so with that, I charge ahead with great enthusiasm.
My wish for each of you is that you have a similar outlook and optimism for 2015. Flush the bad parts of 2014 and prepare for an incredible 2015 where anything is possible. As I said last year, eat too much, drink just enough, and love your friends and family even when they are getting on your nerves.
Last year my family tried to do something creative with our Christmas card. The first time we did something different we had so many comments from friends and family we decided that we had to repeat, but were lost as to what that would be. This photo is where we ended up.
Some might think that it lacks class, which is probably true, but to those I would say. GET OVER IT.
I would like to say to everyone that reads this blog that I sincerely appreciate you tuning in with me every week to hear my thoughts on what is going on in our industry. I don’t always get it right but I try to make it interesting. From my family to yours, we hope that you have a very blessed holiday and that you make some memories that you will cherish the rest of your life.
That will be it for Q’s Views for the rest of 2014 so have a great break and I will see you back here for what is sure to be an exciting 2015.
