2016 looking back and looking forward

This past year has been a mixed bag.

  1. I really hate the way politics played out this year.  Not a surprise to anyone that has read my blog
  2. I have gotten much more involved in the kids school and parent organizations.
  3. Work has been going well.  I think I’ve finally hit my stride in the new job and am making a difference
  4. My exercise program and diet have gone completely to hell
  5. My stress level and other related issues are being managed much better

Overall, from a personal standpoint things are good.  From a global standpoint I think things have gotten bad and won’t be getting better without significant effort from everyone.

Looking forward to 2017:

  1. I plan on getting my exercise program back together
  2. Will work with the family to get things around the house organized
  3. Spend even more quality time with my family
  4. Put together a plan to run for office.  I need to investigate viability of a run for local office first
  5. Continue to improve things at work
  6. Become increasingly more involved with the kids school, their progress and the parent organizations
  7. Learn to fly my drone for fun and stress relief

My overall goal is to make 2017 the best it can possibly be.  I am going to do my part to make sure things don’t go completely to hell with the new administration in order to keep the world a safe place for my kids.
