Around 3 months ago, a 4 legged fiend came into my life (meet Bach, my 6 month old Kelpie X). He can be an absolute handful, but he has changed my life in so many ways and taught me a lot. From understanding the impact of leadership, the importance of patience in building success and that sometimes you really do have to fail in order to learn.
Fail I did, learnt I have!
I've also had some other life changing events. In short... 2009 was huge. I got married, moved to Melbourne for work and to carve out a new life and bought my first home to top it all off... Only to have the slate wiped clean with what seems to be the curse of our generation. It seems to be the norm for people to walk away from a relationship when things are difficult, rather than sticking with it and working at it. Leave it to life to throw you lemons!
I've had some time away from here to get my house in order and re-assess things... I have a clean slate, and a burning desire to lead a healthier and more inspired life. It can be difficult to find the motivation to dedicate hours of research and writing... but succeeding online is just as much about a well thought strategy and a long term commitment - not just the occasional bright idea.
So for my first post for 2010 I won't be naive enough to be making predictions but just wanted to leave putting down a thought. Whatever is on the horizon, I'm certain that passion and an ability to accept that things you now hold as truths today will evidently change tomorrow will be two traits that keep this digital universe I've come to love thriving.
