Happy New Year!
Well, wasn’t 2015 fun? We had quite an entertaining year; I graduated from the Open University, got a new job, won the Area contest with my band Carlton Brass then finished a creditable 4th at the National Finals; Ruby continues to be gorgeous & is developing into a loving, funny, incredible human being; Jo is still the love of my life, the one who supports me without question & who I adore more & more every year. I hope your 2015 has been great too.
I’ve given up doing resolutions – I never even make it to January before breaking all of them. This year I am going to express some weak aims that may even be achievable. These are:
- Exercise more (I’ve joined a gym!)
- Blog more (every day? Unlikely)
- Bring more systems thinking into my work life
The last one is probably the most interesting to me. I started my new job at the University of Nottingham last month and they have shown an interest in using systems thinking to improve their working practices. I’ve been getting more and more interested in using these tools recently and I’m glad that I now work somewhere that values it.
In the meantime I’m going to enjoy one of the many beers I got for Christmas. Have a great start to the year!
