A Quick Review of 2014

2014

 

Another year ends. There was less “real” (i.e. paid properly) work as I launched three (!) books this year. Interestingly enough, the paid work was pretty challenging and there were many new things to learn from Singapore’s pre-colonial history to e-commerce to learning how to bathe an elephant. I would like to be more disciplined about sleeping in the year ahead.
