2021. We made it.

Summer / 2020

We made it to 2021. I sorta always knew we would but I also knew that we would all be different. Broken down. Hopefully rebuilt. Ready to tackle what is ahead because, deep down, we all know that is exactly what we have to do.

I am not much for New Years Resolution. They have always been crazy hollow for me. BUT – I know this year can be the year for me to change and grow and be ready for all that life will throw my way.

It can be THE YEAR for my kids.

It can be THE YEAR for my wife.

It can be THE YEAR for our real estate group.

It can be THE YEAR for our family, our friends, our community.

It can be THE YEAR. It will be.

I have goals and I hope you do, too. I hope you begin chasing after them harder than you ever have before. That you understand that your goals matter. That the effort is worth it.

The effort is worth it.

Do something HUGE this year. Something “impossible”. Just remember that to get there, it takes getting better everyday because those achievements are the sum of all of your days – good and bad.

For me, this looks like several things:

  1. Continue to ask myself: “What is your goal?” and “What are you doing RIGHT THIS SECOND to achieve it?”
  2. Move: Get off the couch. Don’t negotiate those goals. Get after it everyday.
  3. Reflect: Get to know my thoughts and make sure my mind is right everyday

This is my year.

This year means financial freedom.

This year means better health.

This year means more bicycle rides and more trail runs.

This year means watching my kids find their voice.

This year means navigating my “next” for work and a career.

This year is for helping more people buy and sell homes.

This year will be more.

Let’s keep this going. Coming up, I will have more Stories of Evoke, thoughts on community and mindset, and running and riding bicycles. But my biggest hope of all is that there will be a deeper conversation here so that this journal can grow into something more valuable for you and for me.

I’m an open book. I want to share. I want to engage.

Thanks for interacting and entertaining me with these posts. Thank you for sharing it with your network. It feels good to write and I’m learning a lot in the process.

It’s 2021. We made it. Now let’s get to work.

    Keep it going man! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Also, would love a post breaking down cycling styles if that’s in your wheelhouse (road, mountain, gravel, cyclocross, etc). I’ve always been curious about what the draw is to each. Or maybe what your preference is and why?

    • Great prompt! I’ll put that sort of post on the list for sure. Thanks again, Andrew, for all the contributions!
