2010 in review

Posted: Wednesday, December 29, 2010 by Travis Cody in

At midnight on Friday, 365 days will have passed.  That's the extent of my 2010 review.


OK, I'll be serious.  

Stop laughing!

Let me say this.  In life, there are always at least two options to any decision.  Sometimes you get more options...sometimes all good ones, sometimes all so-so ones, and sometimes all sucky ones.  Or sometimes it's a mix of a lot of good/so-so/sucky.

But at a minimum, you'll always have two options.

  • To act
  • To not act
I'll be keeping that in mind as 2011 starts its steady 365 day, 525,600 minute, entropy-driven march.  Even if my options are only sucky, I can act or not act according to my own decision.  

Nobody gets to make me do one or the other.  To act or not...that's what I get to control.

Best wishes to all for a year during which you act or don't act according to your own choosing.


  1. I'm reminded of something I read this year about "winning the day." Just win the day.

    I think people tend to forget that it's just that easy - to act or to not act. I think a balance of both is what makes for a successful life.

    Best wishes for a very happy 2011 full of only the best acts!

    In a way your first sentence said it all for me. All of 2010 just felt meh ... I hope you have a wonderful New Year and that the year of the rabbit will be way more interesting than the year of the Tiger has been.

  1. It seems incredibly simple that there are two choices, but the truth is, you're absolutely right.

    Happy New Year.

    Travis, I hope you won't mind, but I may have to tape this on my locker at work.

    Thanks and happy new year!
