This is the time of year I reflect back over 2016 and I always look forward to more personal achievements the following year. I’m always seeking more and fret on being static when I should be moving ahead or up.
Overall it’s been a weird year with off ‘predictions’ by folks who have been around for years. Where I’m older now and been around the block with different careers, it doesn’t take me long to kind of get a broad overlook of the whole situation. A view from outside the box sort of thing.
In the winning of contracts for example, employees with 30 years in … expecting no issues renewing a contract but shocked to see it happen. The university trained, young blood mentality today of cut and get cheaper with the expense of getting rid of the seasoned and experienced. Bring in new and train… pay them less though. Only looks good on laptop accounting screens … more profit. Keep it up kid, you’ll go far.
Yep… that’s definitely sarcasm
Companies outsourcing Internationally to take advantage of cheap labour and layoff the ‘home’ workers. That’s the world today.
How can a womanizing racist become President of the United States? Ain’t going to happen they said along with the current President, soon to hand over the reigns in January.
Along with things that changed and to my lifestyle is the disappearance of the rental movies in the city where I live and pretty well everywhere. I enjoyed browsing through the new releases, chatting with the store owners and looking forward to an entertaining night.
One thing that hasn’t changed is those new songs that have that beat I like and crank up the volume a tad. The best tune I like this year is Justin Timberlake’s .. Can’t Stop The Feeling. That song wants to make me get up and do the funky duck.
It took a while but I jumped into the Bitcoin online world this year and so far, It’s been a plus while I read the positive news about the digital currency.
There was a lot of other surprises and disappointments … too many to mention here like ‘My Boys’ not making the playoffs last season, the Montreal Canadiens and I’m certain most folks have gone through ups and downs as well. I’m always the stay positive type guy and don’t think about the past much, it’s about moving on and ahead … 2017 will be even better in work, business and personally.
