Today is Christmas. Merry Christmas to everyone. I took some time off to reflect on my year and look at how to make next year better.
Overall, it has been a thrilling and a fantastic year by the grace of God and I am grateful for all of God’s blessings this year.
I will just share a few highlights of the good stuff of my year in review.
As a person..
1. I grew more as a Christian spoke to a lot of people about Jesus Christ, became a role model/mentor/shepherd to other young people and supported the work of God in a lot of ways.
2. I finally figured out what I wanted to do and which direction my life would take.
3. I improved exponentially in all aspects of my life: I became a better-embedded systems engineer, better software developer, a better entrepreneur, better blogger and I developed good critical thinking skills.
4. I came to appreciate the importance of family, friendships and relationships and the importance of happiness and fulfilment.
5. I met a lot of amazing people and grew my network.
As an entrepreneur. ..
6. My startup, Invent Electronics grew bigger and made 5 times more revenue compared to 2016. (I am still not a millionaire yet though)
7. My startup, Wires & Bytes won MTN apps challenge, finally launched Pasco and started generating revenue.
8. I worked on two engineering research projects which were very successful and are going commercial now and I appeared on National television because of them.
9. I finally built a new personal website and published lots of great stuff including 2 ebooks. I also launched a pilot business consultancy project which went well.
10. I helped run a successful Project iSWEST Bootcamp and sparked up the spirit of innovation in several of the young people I met.
There have been a lot of downs too but overall it’s been a good year and I can’t wait for next year.
