Best of 2015 #1: How I Wrecked By Making a Hard Left Turn At 40

December 31, 2015

As I look back over 2015, my most popular posts, the ones that really seemed to connect with readers, had two things in common; they were times I talked about being vulnerable and they tied in my friend Howard Tayler and his comic Schlock Mercenary. I’ve already mentioned that by far the most popular posts were earlier this month when I interviewed Howard and his wife Sandra about running a small business. 

The most popular post from other than that week, tied in similar themes. I tied together my worst job experience, where I tried unsuccessfully to get out of the computer business, to Howard’s change when he successfully left the computer business. But, it’s not just that we left. How we chose to leave is what made the difference between his success and my failure. 

Thanks for a wonderful year. It’s been, by far this blog’s most successful year. Thanks to those people I’ve interviewed, and especially to those of you who’ve shown up everyday to read my scribblings. Here’s to an even better 2016 for each of you. And here is the most popular post, sort of, from 2015:
