Here’s to the end of an awesome year, and the start of another awesome year 

 December 27, 2018

Another year is about to end, only to get us into a new one.

For me, the last twelve months were full of learning and discovery.

I read more books then I did in the last 5 years, combined.

I wrote more blog posts and books (including my largest book ever, KiCad Like a Pro 2e, a 90,000-word mammoth).

I recorded more video lectures and Stemiverse podcast episodes than ever before.

I published the best courses and books I have ever created.

I met more amazing people from around the world than ever before, each of them unique in their own way, people that strive to leave the world a better place.

2018 was an absolute cracker of a year.

What is 2019 going to be like? It should come to no surprise, that I have a plan.

But the most important aspect of my plan is Learning.

That is “learning” with a capital “L.”

That is learning that is in-depth, practical, applicable.

Learning that I apply in problems in everyday life.

Learning that has the potential to transform my life, not just improve it.

Learning that has the potential to make life fulfilling, not just better.

I’m sure you are the same. Otherwise, you would not have signed up to any of my courses.

With the opportunity of the renewal of the year, I want to wish you a healthy and safe 2019, full of learning that will transform and fulfill your life.

I also want to ask you this: What are you planning to learn in 2019? What skill(s) do you want to master? Post your answers in the comments below.

Happy 2019 and Happy Making!
