What have I learned in 2013?

  • If I keep my current reading schedule, it will take me 12.5 years to read all the books in my to-read list.
  • Galicia is a lot like California.
  • I learned (just a little bit) how to make bread and beer. And a mean tiramisú.
  • My great-great-granfather had a liquor company.
  • All of us have our towers to climb
  • I have certainly improved how to take care of my plants. 2013 casualty list: zero.
  • I’m still not very good at following online classes (MOOCs). I had to drop out from one in statistics.
  • I’m still proud of being a small publisher.
  • I am awesome, but I (still) don’t know which way to go.
  • Change within ourselves doesn’t happen overnight, but in small incremental doses. It’s not impossible to modify habits or behaviors, but it’s certainly hard. Change coming from outside is sudden and brutal. Neither affirmation is completely true. 
  • A healthy imagination is a powerful tool to measure happiness, provide milestones and promote change. Let’s keep imagining this year.
  • If I died today, how would I be remembered? What would other people say? Did I have an effect in other people large enough to be noticed? By how many? I ask myself these questions a lot lately. In the end, it’s a matter of the decisions you make every day, every second, to be the most of what can you be.
