It’s always fun to do a year in review post because it’s interesting to review all the failures! I’m always so enthusiastic about my goals during the beginning of the year and I inevitably lose steam towards the end. Does this happen to any of you?
For 2016, I had 15 goals divided into business goals, personal goals, and personal financial goals. If we can do just one important thing a month, we’ll all become superstars over time.
I didn’t believe this year would be any good due to my less than enthusiastic outlook for the stock market, real estate market, startup ecosystem, and my own personal business. After all, 2015 eked out just a ~1% total return if you include dividends. But of course as we all now know, everything turned out lollipops and cotton candy!
Let’s go through why it’s always better to be lucky than good.
