In the last years it was a kind of tradition that I give the holidays’ speech to my team, summarizing our achievements and setting the bar for the next year to come. From year to year the team got bigger, same as the achievements and dreams for the next year. It was a good opportunity to stop the ongoing madness and to appreciate what we have. And each year I felt lucky for being able to do so.
This year I decided to keep the tradition with one change – this time you are the audience of my ‘speech’.
Keeping it short (no one likes to read long posts…), in the last year I made a huge change in my career which dramatically impacts my life – I’ve decided to follow my dreams and be an entrepreneur. It was not a one day decision but a process, in which together with the support of my wife I took the jump into a new world. For me it’s definitely only the beginning of a journey. My life really changed and one of the best things that happened is that without noticing I managed to spend much more time with the kids and enjoy most of it (after all, 3 kids can be annoying :-)).
What do I wish for next year?
In one sentence - Keep fulfilling my dreams, while focusing on the big stones and avoid distraction by the small ones.
So, have a great new year, spend your time wisely, be with your beloved, explore, dare, rest, enjoy and follow your heart.
And do not forget -“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present”
