Let me start by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has an opportunity this week to spend some quality time with some of those closest to you.
I’m not liking the weather right now. I only got in one round of golf and barely any other outdoor time. I did however take this opportunity to reconnect with some old friends and to connect with some new ones. I had gym time with partner in crime Shelby, cigars with my old friend Joe, a great zoom meeting with old friend Prince, a long phone call with my old friend John, a three hour meeting with member Steve, a lunch with friend Roger, a zoom with new friend Sergio and coffee with new friend Shane. While it’s hard for me to call that work, a lot has come from it but I’m more thankful just for the ability to spend this time with them.
In addition to that I was able to spend a lot of one on one time with Michele, we ate multiple dinners together at home, I even cooked a pot of chili, we went to a movie and went out to eat. I was able to take my father out for a nice brunch and a little bit of shopping as well. On top of all of that, I went to the gym four times and went out to eat a couple more times.
Did I do any work? I attended three WAM! meetings last week and spent about three hours following up with items from those. I worked on the 2021 WAM! Charity Golf Classic for about two hours, spent three hours working on preparations for next year’s hike and spent seven hours following up on emails and other work, which is more than I normally schedule for myself.
This is why it’s so shocking to me when I hear people tell me that they would be bored out of their mind if they were retired. I still can’t find enough time to do all that I want to do. What would you do if you had more time?
Anyway, have a fantastic week and again, Merry Christmas,
