When you are through changing, you are through. 
-Bruce Barton

I started Choice of Action one year ago.  Over the last year I have tried using this blog to strike a balance of being informative for others while also being a personal tool for improvement.  Looking back, I can say that it has unquestionably succeeded in helping me with my own goals.  I can only hope that some of the advise was useful for others.

For me, the last year has been highlighted by anticipation for big life changes.  Over the next month I will be quitting my job, getting married and starting law school.  These are all things that I have been planning for quite a while so the change is not really shocking.  Yet it is very difficult to stay in the moment with all of this on my mind.

I used to think of myself as someone who was not exactly comfortable with a lot of change.  I now think it is more true that I am just more comfortable (and generally more successful) in familiar situations.  When placed in new settings I prefer to assess, survey and see how things work on their own before acting.  I anticipate I will do the same thing when I start law school, though the time to analyze will need to be short as I attempt to balance a big workload with family life.

I am not exactly sure how this blog will look in the future.  Anyone who has occasionally visited it will have noticed that I stopped posting regularly months ago.  The biggest success of the blog has been maintaining my workout log for over 6 months.  Updating the log has provided both motivation to work out and a sense of accomplishment in looking back.  I plan on continuing to post my workouts.  I am also considering posting a similar log in connection with my law school studying.

Moving forward with my life I remain steadfastly excited for the future.  Excited both for the beginning of a new career and for new beginnings with the woman of my dreams.  Amidst years of questioning and analyzing what career to pursue, a stabilizing force in my life has been my future wife, for whom I have never doubted my pursuit.
