I’ve stayed up two of the last eight nights driving from Florida to Michigan and then back again with my wife, two kids, two dogs, and enough cargo to pack a 747. Ask me anything …
Anyway, few years are truly all good or bad, though we try to label them as such.
For me, this year had some important wins. A career pivot was made, and I’m on a mission I truly believe in. Fifty-two editions of this newsletter welcomed over 800 new subscribers (thank you!). In my family, we continue to fight a mental health battle we have not yet won, but more importantly, we have not lost.
Thank you for sharing your valuable time to read this newsletter. It means a lot.
In 2023, I hope to narrow the newsletter’s positioning and expand its reach. Might even rename it. We will see.
Here are the most popular 2022 editions of the newsletter as measured by hearts clicked:
The Streak and the Stop: the time I stopped writing—and started again.
Steady beats defeat plateaus: changes made to break through a long strength plateau.
Your Pivot has more Power than You Think: draw on your past to launch a new future.
Once Upon a Time in Mexico: On working remote and coming together.
Gaining Signal from the Off Position: shut your brain down to spark creativity.
The power of patterns, burgers, and creatine: honestly, I think you just liked the gratuitous cheeseburger photo.
Can you get great at saying no?: I had lots of practice in 2022. More reps are coming.
Happy new year to you and yours. I’ll see you back here 52 times in 2023.
Thank you for reading.
Let’s keep the steady beats going right through 2023.
If you liked this edition, would you mind giving the heart a click? Thank you.
Happy New Year!
Bless you and your family for coming to the Midwest in December.
Thank you for writing this newsletter!
