2007 is right around the corner with all of it’s potential and possibilities. This past year had some milestones and successes I am happy about but this past year as the previous years back to 2000, the constant to my highlight reel has been the love of my life, Valerie. this year has been no different except that it does get better each year, even with the occasional bumps in the road. May she continue to bless my life and I hers in 2007.
Here are some other things notable in my ’06:
•Discovered the Warrior Diet through Ori Hofmekler and lost over 30# and 3″ from my waist. I also cleared up a health issue at the same time.
•I got started in a new and different fitness routine that wasn’t even a routine, Crossfit, and got in what may be as good an overall condition as I have ever been in.
•Tied in with with Crossfit, I trained with Steve and Denise Serrano at Crossfit Marina and have benefitted mightily from their training and friendship. Also, Stephane Rochet and Mark Rippetoe have been very helpful as have dozens of other Crossfit people, some of whom I either met briefly or not at all in person but derived valuable help from. Then there is Brent Oakeson, who is the best training partner you can have. He inspires and pushes me with his strength and enthusiasm.
•My business partner and friend, Skip Hathaway, has been a great friend and teacher to me and I think I value his sage wisdom almost as much as he does!
•I lost a couple of long-time accounts in 2006 and my goal is to get at least one of them back in 2007.
•My friendships and relationships have been richly rewarding at best and others were still “smooth sailing”, but by the end of this year there has been a bit of drama from a few fronts. I hope none carry over into 2007.
•My “old” friends like Sean, Ciri, Terri, Alicia, George, John, to name but a few have been around his year but I miss Glenn & Gary. Where are you guys? Some “surprise” appearances have come from, Jim & Julie, Bill, Rene, Nancy, Stephanie and Lucia. I have developed some good business relationships and friends for whom I am thankful. But it is my family that I am most thankful for.
I wish all of you and those unintentionally omitted, a peace-filled prosperous New Year.
I am eager for 2007 to commence. Time to “Get some”!
