Old Year Resolutions & The Year in Review

Is  there such a thing as an Old Year Resolution?

As we race towards the end of 2015, I find myself looking back on a good year. It’s wasn’t great, I had a few failures, but I had some glorious success stories too. I find, this year I am celebrating the success instead of sulking over the failures.

So we come to this blog and my Old Year Resolution; this is where I think I should revisit those successes, and those failures. Ponder them, post about them, reflect on the lessons I learned in 2015.  What worked and why? Why was 2015 a great year?

We often think of making changes at the start of the next cycle, in this case the next year. But really, don’t we need to debrief before we make those changes? A resolution is useless if you don’t know what happened before you made the change.

So we’re in the last days of 2015. And really, we’re almost at the end of usable working days. It’s time for your Year-in-Review. Either publicly or privately, it’s time for you to start thinking about how you did in this past year.

My Old Year Resolution is to blog about 2015; to find the time to post my year in review. To finish those drafts I have hanging around, to write about :

  • MoodlePosium, OSDC and BuzzConf and all the fun I had there,
  • to reflect back on MoodleMoot Australia and the excitement of being an Invited Speaker,
  • to talk about how my trip to Japan challenged and changed me,
  • to write about the exciting projects I’m working on for 2016,
  • and to write a review of my favourite new IoT board – the Particle Photon.

How about you; how was your 2015? What’s your Old Year Resolution?
