Theme for 2017

After 2016 turned into a difficult and challenging year, I am very much looking forward to new directions in 2017.

During the latter half of 2016 my health and well-being took a real set back. I had been prioritising other things. I had been giving some sound advice all year to the people I manage. Eventually I started to hear the advice and take it on board for myself.
