I met my goals for the year this week
I am retired as of December 31.
It wasn't easy going through things and disposing of them this year. 38 years of work reduced to 1/2 box of papers. Permaplaqued diplomas and licenses digitally photographed and thrown away.
The equivalent of a packed two car garage of hobbies, preparations, tools, manuals sold, given to charity and the last going to an older brother this morning when he drives down. The cancer society comes next week for the last large item.
No, it doesn't mean that I am perfect. It reflects an understanding that part of survival preparations are to cull the gear, cull the projects and get rid of things that no longer work for you.
