Stock Take 2011

Alright, it’s almost the end of the year and it’s time for a stock take on how I scored on my list of New Year’s Resolutions!

  • Ramen Profitability
    My company has hit several milestones this year. I hired my first full-time staff this year and my company became a registered supplier to a major corporation. I’m currently waiting for management approval for a project. We completed negotiations about a week or two ago and it’s now the holiday season. So, the jury’s still out on this one but things are looking up.
  • Study Law
    Well, I have certainly started law school and have been studying as much law as I can manage. Consti and MLS seem manageable. Tort is friggin confusing. I’ve yet to cover Contract and Islamic Law but I intend to do so by the end of the year. So, this one is in the bag.
  • Chartered Engineer
    I attended my professional interview in early November and the results have been sent for approval. I’ve been told to wait for 6-8 weeks to hear back from them. Unfortunately, that’s smack in the middle of the holiday season. I don’t foresee any potential hurdles so, I expect to hear back positively from them early next year. So, this one is essentially in the bag.
  • Write a Book
    Darn, I’ve not done much for this one besides compile the materials. I’ve not actually started any writing. If I have the time, I might do some writing in the last two weeks of December. If I do, that would be a technical win.

So, things aren’t so bad considering that most people give up on their resolutions within the first month of the new year. That said, there is still a few more weeks to go before the year’s end. It’s still not too late to hit another milestone.

Go!
