...don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Not gonna lie. It's been a shitty year. As the printing industry declines my day job has become more hours for less money as the company tries to cut pricing to the bone and maximize efficiency in an effort to stay open. Doing videos has already been like a second full time job and the "real job" work demands have made that so much harder this year.
Personally, my father passed away as well as two family pets. My mother, who is quite mentally ill, has required extra care and management which further eats into my shrinking pool of free time. My sleep deficit (at my age of 50) has reached critical mass and I can't seem to function on 5 - 6 hours sleep (or less many nights) like I used to be able to do. Financial setbacks have hit pretty hard this year too, with house, car and medical issues putting a fat dent into many of my plans to subsidize some more ambitious videos.
I am not telling you guys this to garner sympathy or make excuses. Just venting and looking forward to 2018 and praying that it is going to be a much better year for all of us. I apologize (yet again) for periodic bouts of non-communication and disorganization.
I promise it is not a case of wanting to be un-responsive or attentive to some VERY patient people, it's just that I often can't find the time in the day to get everything done.
So...no need to post sympathetic affirmations for me here. I feel the love and it is appreciated. I will endeavor to surge into 2018 with some renewed vigor and start charting the Maxgrowth course into the future.
