Challenges in life

Tweet Life’s one of those funny things, when you are in the middle of it there is always lots going on. When you look back, you wonder – what did I really do? What have I achieved? Of course the start of a new year is often prime time for thinking about these sorts of things. [...]

Life’s one of those funny things, when you are in the middle of it there is always lots going on. When you look back, you wonder – what did I really do? What have I achieved? Of course the start of a new year is often prime time for thinking about these sorts of things.

How many times have you pondered: “how many hours did I waste in the office last year?” – don’t get me wrong (esp if my work mates or boss is reading this), I enjoy my job, even more so now that I’ve some new areas of responsibility. But life is too short to spend it all wrapped up in an office. I spend on average 8 – 10 hours a day sitting at a desk working. I’m blessed that my job is one that I am passionate about. Hey, I work in the web & mobile spaces – two topics I can easily talk & dream about all day long.

In 2010 however I want to explore ‘life‘ itself more. Of course 2 and a bit years ago my wife and I welcomed our darling little girl into our lives – she has taught me more about life than I think I’ve taught her about the world (alphabets etc). Coming home at the end of a day to see her at the back door with a big grin “Dadddddy” – yeah that’s life! To sit here trying to blog, with her banging away on the fireplace with a broken wooden spoon – it’s annoying, but it’s life.

rallychallenge2010.comSo, what is 2010 going to hold for you? For me it’s going to be a challenge, a huge challenge. I’ve new areas of responsibility at work which excite (and scare) me. My wife and I are considering a new place to live, which leads us to the “do we sell this house or do we rent it out” type questions. And then I go and decide I want to race in the Transsyberia Rallye!

I’ve set up a whole project, website & twitter account for the Rally Challenge 2010 – and I encourage you to go check it out. Needless to say, I think once in a while we need to tackle and try the impossible. I might make it, I might not, but at least I’ll get to the end of 2010 & sit back with a beer and be able to say “Dang, I gave that a darn good crack & had a heap of fun on the way!”

So what are you doing for 2010?
