Greetings, everyone. I made it home from my Annual Review trip and have been enjoying the holiday week at home.
Only two days remain in this entire year… which brings us to this non-commercial reminder:
If 2010 was an awful year, well, it’s all over and now you get a new start.
If 2010 was amazing, well, it’s all over and now you get a new start.
See how it works? Eat, drink, and be merry, for 2010 ends forever tomorrow night. Then it’s time to start working on a fantastic 2011, and if you start today, you’ll be two days ahead of everyone else.
This time of year, resolution-bashing is a common sight around the blogosphere. Don’t just make resolutions! Change your life! I know, I know, it’s a good message and I’ve done it too.
But the way you change your life is by deciding (resolving) on change and then taking action toward the change. Yes, some people join the gym and drop out by February. But you’re not “some people” right? Other people stick with it, and the former couch potato is running a marathon by the time September comes around.
So let’s be in the group that makes the change and sticks with it. Let’s make this the best year ever, whether we make resolutions or not.
Late next week I head out to meet readers on a tour of every province in Canada. (January is a good time to tour Canada, right?) First stop, Newfoundland, then east-to-west across the whole country by planes, trains, and automobiles.
On January 25th I’m starting a completely new business venture, the Travel Hacking Cartel. I’m pretty sure it will be my most significant biz project of the whole year. Expect good things.
After that, I’ll be back on the road to visit 20 new countries. On the list for the first few months: Libya, Yemen, Turkmenistan, East Timor, Madagascar, and more.
I’m writing my second book (formal announcement soon) while preparing to host 450+ amazing people from all over the world in the great city of Portland.
Those are a few highlights of the first half of my year, and you’re welcome to participate in any of these adventures with me. But mostly I’m looking forward to hearing about your adventures and seeing what happens with all of you over there.
2010, what a year it’s been. But now we need to step it up for 2011. Are you in? What’s your big plan?
