As I’ve mentioned before, I draw a significant amount of inspiration from Seth Godin’s daily blogs (in fact, they’re the reason I started this blog). I wasn’t really sure what I was going to post today until he sent out his blog, where he acknowledged people who have had a significant contribution to his life over the year. So in the spirit of this, I’m going to write an appreciation post for the people who have played a specific role in my 2017.
Before I get into it, two quick points. The first is that this list is by no means exhaustive and I’m likely to accidentally forget people, so please bare this in mind! Secondly, I’m not going to post people’s full names, just in case they don’t want them out there. I’ll also be grouping people under categories in some instances so they’re more recognisable to people who know them 🙂
Now then, thank you to all of those listed below. You have helped me both survive the bad parts and really enjoy the good parts of this year. Thank you for helping me achieve what I have achieved and for being there to support me. Here goes (in no particular order):
