I start off every year by looking back at what I have learned in my previous year. I write it down so that I'll remember it when I'm neck deep in work and too busy to think.

....This got me thinking about the scarcity of original material out there. It's time we spend less effort curating and more creating. Create something to be shared. It doesn't have to be groundbreaking or entirely new. It doesn't even have to be that great. This post isn't the best ever written. It will be ingonored or forgotten by most who read it. Some little part of it will stick with someone though.Read More
