As the year comes to its end, I always like to take a look back and see what I have done well as well as what can be improved, and of course I tend to ask myself why…
2018 has been an incredibly dense year for the world as whole as well as for myself personally. Geopolitically, there has been soo much that happened. The following list can perhaps outline what the world has spoken the most of:
In 2018 the world has seen many incredible breaktroughs. Technology has advanced at the speed of light. It is nearly impossible to write down a list of these innovations as there are soo many. Personally, I am optimistic to see how these incredible discoveries will be implemented in everyday life going forward. The good news is that many start up founders do share the same opinion. Here are few of those that grabbed my attention the most.
In 2018 the world of business and finance has seen many changes that will have lasting impact. Monetary policy changes, half centurty long policy trade policy reviews, algo trading, unusual stock market behaviour and hedge fund closures have been few of the interesting events.
For me personally, 2018 has been an incredible experience. As with everything else, it is hard to say what has been the most important. The year was marked by the loss of my maternal grandmother. An event that has made me grow up and perhaps finally become an adult. I have visited and worked in five new countries this year. At my job at Bloomberg, I had many challenges but at the same time I learned the most and closed the best ever year in terms of enterprise sales. Family wise, we have we have managed to gather all together for the year end, which givem the cultural differences as well as geographical locations of everyone, it is a huge achievement. We have also managed to grow our relationships to the next level, which is fantastic. Business wise, the family business has grown and we have managed to make the first real estate investment in long time. My wife’s business is also in a ready to go mode. I have also compled my first 10K run in the desert, in the summer which is a challenge. I learned a lot about blockchain and read Eckhart Tolle‘s Power of Now which is a book that I can easily recommend. And much much more…
For 2019, I already have an exciting list of things to do. Getting ready to get them done. Thanks for reading and let me know how was your 2018. Thank you 2018 and lets make 2019 great again!
