Best of 2022.  Hello 2023.  

Hello Friends & Family, 

2022 has come to an end and 2023 is upon us.  2022 zoomed by so fast.   A strangely benign year when compared to the few years before.  We had inflation reach all new highs, the war in Ukraine, the overturning of Roe vs. Wade and the stunning images coming back from the James Webb Telescope just to name a few events.  

Generally speaking, 2022 was a great year for myself and my family.  No complaints.  Everyone is healthy.  Park City, Utah is amazing. The family is thriving.   I am grateful for my health, family, friends and the opportunities ahead on all fronts.  Sure, there are setbacks but thats life.       

Here is a link to my end of year post from last year. I’m going to try something different and provide my “Best of 2022”.  All different categories.  Why not?  Here we go!

Top 3 predictions for 2023 

  • The return of more in office behavior.  Companies will come to realize they are less effective working remote and will slowly ask employees back to the office.  Some industries will just flat out tell folks to come back.  
  • The economy begins its recovery but slower than expected — inflation begins to flatten, technology remains in a slump and we should see jobs begin to soften from its hit levels. 
  • The Yankees will make it to the World Series but will not win. 

Happy New Year from my family to yours.  Here’s to a great 2023!  

Thank you for reading.  I’m really hoping to “create” more in 2023 — writing, code, music, whatever.  Stay tuned.  Please share you thoughts and comments below.
