This will be my last blog posting for 2019. Our holidays fall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this year so office hours are somewhat irregular. Back when we had local newspapers, I enjoyed reading the year in review stories on sports, politics, religion, movies, and other topics. Most of this has moved online, no doubt providing plenty of “click bait” for troll farms and scam artists. As a safer alternative, I suggest doing your own year in review. It does not have to be elaborate or even written down. Just ask yourself a few questions, such as:
- What will I remember most about 2019?
- What was my proudest moment during the year?
- What was my low point and what did I learn from it?
- What would I like to do or experience again?
- What do I want to avoid in the future?
- What did I learn, either personally or professionally, in 2019?
- What do I regret missing?
- Did I make a new friend?
- Did I lose an old friend?
