It’s that time of the year again. Time to think about promises to keep for the new year. There are always the old staples - exercise, eat right, spend time with family. But as someone who focuses like a laser on a goal, I’d like to do something unusual this year. Any suggestions?

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
