goodbye, 2014

Toronto, 2014.12.24

Well, 2014, you're effectively done - and with all the VUCA* I reckon it's best to be ready for anything.

VUCA is an acronym I learned this year: volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. It really summed up the times very well, with the world's growing conflict, the financial unease, and social unrest unusually lasting until the snow flies. I really don't know what to expect from the years ahead except: more.

Three good things that happened this year:

  1. Finished a master's degree that was interesting and relevant.
  2. Learned to stop worrying and just settle down. We've committed to Toronto after years of uncertainty (see; VUCA).
  3. Had a hum-dinger of a work year, while Mari started to focus her plans, and the kids grew like weeds. The Boy can basically read now, in two languages!
