As am I, but you never know. Sometimes it is something simple. Relatively. ;-) Thank you though.

It's been a while since I posted an update here. In that time I completed my 5th Nerd Fitness 6-Week Challenge scoring perfect marks. Of course, I set the goals to be achieved and keep them achievable for the most part. I am one speech away from completing my first Toastmasters manual. I'm a couple leactures short of completing Force 101 and Meditation 101. I've hit just about every goal in my PLP since I created it. I think I need to update it.

To effectively rewrite my PLP, I plan to post my status in several areas, then set some goals to achieve noting benchmarks and milestones. I'd like to plan it out for all of 2013. This will take some time to complete, so look for it in a couple weeks.

Almost 4 years ago... Time to dust this space off so I can update my PLP again and set my sights for future success.
