2017 a Winner of a Year!

Before January comes to an end. I wanted to write a short blog post of why 2017 was one of the best years of my life.

Here is a list of things I did in 2017 (worth mentioning):

  • Finally. Made Progress with my GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder)
  • Climbed Table Mountain
  • Bought my first MackBook Pro
  • Travelled to a new continent (Australia)
  • Travelled the Garden Route
  • Took up Mountain Biking
  • Completed a grueling (at least for me) 45km MTB Race.
  • Landed a dream remote job.
  • Attended 2x WordCamps
  • Involved in organising 2x WordCamps
  • Did a WordCamp Talk
  • Launched a WordPress Plugin
  • Got 5 new WordPress.org badges.
  • Launched my new website
  • Got into a morning routine
  • Regular Gym
  • Walked the Tsitsikama Bridge
  • Sang in front of 450 people
  • Played music in a band in front of a live audience
  • Got involved where it mattered
  • Made new friends
  • Hung out more with my family
  • Climbed the tallest building in town to put up a WiFi tower.
  • Saw a Koala Bear
  • Touched a Kangaroo
  • Saw the Sydney Opera House
  • Got a Dribbble invite
  • Extensive South African Travels.

What I learned in 2017

  • I love entrepreneurship.
  • Helping people and others heal you. It takes you out of your own problems and once you are out of them. You see how small they actually are.
  • Do things for people around you.
  • Anxiety is a totally false perceived reality
  • You can do WAY more than when you think you can. When you think you’re done, you are only 40% in.
  •  Video Editing, Sound Recording and Tutorial making
  • It doesn’t matter what you feel. It matters what you decide.
  • Ideas are cheap. Execution is everything.
  • Norwegian (in Progress).
  • You can be SO BUSY with all the wrong, insignificant things. Do things that help you get to your goals as quickly and effectively as possible.

Looking forward to 2018
