In June 2013, while having a shower, I had a crazy idea which would manifest in this year being by far the most eventful year of my life.
However, until I actually sat down to write this post I found myself thinking, ‘I haven’t done a lot this year.’
That is why it’s so important to do these kinds of annual reviews.
As humans we vastly overestimate what we can do in a short period of time – like a day – and greatly underestimate what we can achieve over a long period of time – like 4 or 5 years.
I’m a big sucker to this. I’ll have one unproductive day and get down on myself that I’m such a slacker which usually leads to binge watching The Office.
Or I’ll try and write an entire book in a day and get upset with myself when I can’t but don’t realise that if I wrote a little bit everyday for a year I could get several books done!
So I’d like to share with you some of my successes and failures – actually lets call them lessons – that went on in my life this year. I’ll split them between personal and Bootcamp Ideas so you can just skip the personal stuff if you like.
