Here's a list of things I learned (or relearned in some cases) in 2019:

  • When you love what you do it does not feel like work
  • Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do to get to do things you want to do
  • If you are doing things you don’t want to be doing for a long period of time reassess your path, approach etc.
  • Inaction is sometimes best course of action
  • Frustration comes from unreasonable expectations, not being patient enough or worrying about things  that are out of your control
  • Having a routine increases likelihood for success
  • It’s important to have times when you are not doing anything. Often solutions to really hard problems come when you are making a sandwich or taking a shower
  • Spend more time on helping out and solving problems as opposed to judging and complaining
