Happy New Year to you all. I hope it's a year filled with good fortune for you and your family.

As you can imagine, I have lots of New Year's resolutions and ideas for the year ahead. This New Years Eve I spent discussing my ideas with Aisling (the future wifey). Ais had a great idea to ask ourselves a number of questions to reflect on the previous year 2017. The questions and answers were then sealed in a envelope to be opened again on the 31 Dec 2018. 

I really like this approach to setting New Year's resolutions. It makes you reflect on your successes, failures, things that brought happiness/sadness to your life. It really makes your focus on what's important in your life and what you want to achieve and it gives you very focused direction. Aisling and I have also decided to begin a weekly podcast together. The idea behind this podcast is to document our journey and also to give you an insight into our lives. I really hope that you can take something from these weekly podcasts. It would be great to hear your thoughts and ideas for the podcasts.

I hope this will also keep me motivated to write a weekly blog. I had intended to write a weekly blog at the start of last year. However, the motivation just wasn't there. Now that I will be doing a weekly podcast I think I'll find it much easier to stay on track. I hope you enjoy our first podcast.
