I hate to start off 2016 in an aggravated state, but I can’t help it. – SCN Encourager

Some people have all of the luck!

Why couldn’t I be like these other writers and bloggers?

They’ve got it easy.

And don’t you say a word about the “grass is always greener…”

I ain’t buying it.

It’s just too upsetting to read titles like these as 2016 begins:
•  5 tech trends I totally missed in 2015
•  9 assumptions I was way-off-base about in 2015
•  8 ways I disappointed my friends in 2015
•  4 decisions I should’ve let my wife make in 2015
•  3 moves that hurt my finances in 2015

And I could go on and on.

Hopefully, YOU of all people, can understand why I’m peeved.

I mean, what the heck?

How can all of these other guys keep their foul-ups and foibles under double-digits?

I make this many mistakes in a single day!

It’s a hopeless feeling, frankly… knowing I’ll never be able to compose a similarly themed year-end wrap-up.

Never ever.

People just don’t care to read stuff of “War and Peace” length anymore.

Do the math.

The data does me no favors.

Daily double-digit mess-ups X 365.

There’s the sad straight-forward formula representative of my modus operandi for you.


If I wasn’t in such a foul mood, I’d work out the calculation for you – but I’d probably get that wrong, too.

So, no thank you.

I’m in full damage control mode today.

So I’m heading out for a walk or something.
