Welcome to the New Year, folks!
I know a lot of people are ready to move on from last year but I have to admit that, despite being thrown some curve balls along the way, I am pleased and grateful with my overall 2017 experience. A big reason for that is for the first time in a long time I managed to stay on task by cultivating a clear vision for what I want out of life.
Without question I still have a long way to go in my quest to gain financial independence, but I am moving in the right direction. And to clarify, I am not driven by monetary goals (one look at my financials and that will be pretty obvious) or the need for material possessions (in spite of my addictions to comic books and outdoor gear). Basically, I am determined to make a career out of nothing more than the ideas in my head and the skills in my hands. It’s not as easy as it sounds, however, but I’m carrying into 2018 the momentum I generated last year so I’m hopeful for continued success and a favorable outcome for my efforts. I wish for you the same positive outlook and approach for this coming year.
