On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your start to 2020?
Was it a 5, a 7 or a 9 or more? For me, I am giving myself a solid 8! It has been a fast start with some wonderful successes; some great opportunities and some positive progress on key projects. It is not a 10 because I had an expectation that I would have completed a couple of key projects by now.
