🗓 2021 review - a challenging year!

Thursday, February 10, 2022 /2021/

As always, better late then never for my yearly review of the past and long-gone 2021, a tradition I’ve started way back in 2013. To say that last year was challenging would be an understatement, here goes:

🗓 2020 review - a true roller-coaster year 🦠

Thursday, January 21, 2021 /2020/

What a year 2020 was. The start was great, then the pandemic hit and now the world is completely different from the one we knew just a year ago as I was writing my 2019 review. Now, after I’ve published my subjective list of best blog posts of 2020, I’ve redesigned the Home Screens of both my iPad Pro 11” as well as the iPhone Mini it’s now time for my 2020 review. Posting such summary became kind of a tradition over the past 7 years. Luckily for me 2020 wasn’t all bad news but it really was a roller-coaster of a year:

🗓 2019 review - a transition year…

Sunday, January 5, 2020 /2019/

Hello in 2020! So… instead of saying that “hindsight is 20/20” we can say that the future is twenty-twenty! Does it mean, I have a “perfect vision” for this upcoming year - well, maybe… but now let’s focus on reviewing 2019 as it was a very transitional year for me:

🗓 2018 review - an ongoing personal and business development

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 /2018/

Now that 2018 is over and 2019 is upon us… and I’m already 2/3 in doing my annual review, it’s time for a post summarizing the last year for me. I’ve done similar posts about 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013… and they mostly serve me as a reminder how things went, but I hope that they also bring value to you - so here goes:

🗓 2016 review: not bad at all!

Monday, January 30, 2017 /2016/

It’s almost the end of January so I’m pretty late with my 2016 review but… I really needed to write it all down if not for you, then at least for myself. I’be done reviews of 2015, 2014 and 2013 and these served me well so now it’s time to take a look at last year, the 2016, here goes:

🗓 2015 for me: pretty stable overall…

Thursday, January 7, 2016 /2015/

This time it took me a while to do some thinking and reviewing. We’re 7 days in 2016 and I’m still processing all the lessons I’ve learned from 2015. Overall it’s been a pretty stable year for me, but some things didn’t go as planned or were more challenging that I anticipated. Here goes:

🗓 2014 for me: total body and business makeover

Tuesday, December 23, 2014 /2014/

Wow. What a year it was! I lost close to 10kg, did my first triathlon (and two more afterwards!), wrote my first solo book, launched Nozbe 2.0, radically changed our business model, created a new project (to be launched in 2015) and started growing my team the right way… and I still feel like I’ve yet so many things to accomplish! If you’re curious what I learned from all this, read on:

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 /2013/
