My 2014 Balance Sheet

Another year ends, and it’s time for an accounting.


I practiced patience, empathy, and compassion more often and more consistently.

I massively improved my ability (and willingness) to listen.

I spent more time with my family (but this goes in the debit column too, since it wasn’t enough).

I helped more people succeed and overcome their challenges.

I exercised more consistently than I have in many years.

I worked harder to improve my writing and my speaking.

I got much better at saying no to small things to make room for bigger things.

I gave more to the charities that I support.

I trademarked my L4VC™ methodology and started the process on my Building Consensus methodology.

I wrote and posted here every day, marking 5 uninterrupted years, with the exception of the 13 days I spent in Tibet in 2010.

I formed a mastermind group with 5 other hustlers and learned from each of them.


I let work get in the way of publishing my 1st book and two programs I could have launched in 2014.

I moved too slowly and missed some opportunities.

I was too often distracted, and sometimes overwhelmed with work. Mostly unnecessarily.

I ignored two areas of my life that I still need to improve.

I still spent too little time with family.

I spent too little time with my friends.

I didn’t read nearly as much as I need to.

I missed many opportunities for down time and time to reflect.
