2016 In Review
So in this year, here's what I managed to accomplish:
I got a dream job.
I got to go home.
I rediscovered a fascination with photography.
I got to share an amazing anniversary getaway with Kimmers.
I got to spend some amazing time with good friends.
I watched my boys grow up and I watched my daughter find her inner weirdo.
I got to tell my most personal story in front of a crowd of people.
I got to make an ass out of myself in front of (nearly) that same crowd of people.
I got to appear on four podcasts that I didn't make, one of which was literally my dream guest appearance.
I helped three people with their own podcast ideas, which has become a possibility to help more.
I got through a really long period of mourning and came out the other side with clarity.
I released 107 podcast episodes this year. Downloads were down year over year, but I'm ok with that.
I got my studio space back, my time back, my very much needed blocks of quiet solitude back, and I got my health back.
I got my competitive drive back. That took ten years to find.
All in all, I got Kris back; the slightly mad nexus of passion and warfare that was always there has resurfaced with something new tacked on to the fiddly bits at the end: Focus.
That's what 2017 will be. Passion. Warfare. Intensity. Focus.
