Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers, contributors and people who have never heard of us before. If you are lucky enough to spend this time with your family and friends then all the better. From both Ryan O’Grady and myself I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and we will see you all in 2012.

If I can impart a little wisdom nugget on us all in 2012 it would be to live a little, we now live in a world where we are overloaded with information, be it political, ideological or otherwise and sometimes we get so wrapped up in the luminously mundane we lose sight of the fact we are only here for a short time – so let’s all live a little!

Have a lived life instead of a career, put yourself in the safe keeping of good taste, lived freedom will compensate you for a few losses, if you don’t like the style of others – cultivate your own, get to know the tricks of reproduction, be a self publisher even in conversation and then the joy of working can fill your days, may it be so with you and may you keep your powder dry for the battles ahead and know when and how to recognize them.

    Thanks Peter and seasons greetings to you, Ryan, your readers and contributors. As a client of Agentpoint I would like to congratulate Ryan for his uncompromising approach to the support he has provided me in 2011. His approach indicates to me Agentpoint & B2 will keep growing in leaps and bounds in 2012. I hope so, you all deserve it.

    Peter and Ryan. I have thoroughly enjoyed the interaction on this blog over 2011 and have learnt a lot and hopefully have contributed well to the conversations. It was great to see some old time bloggers return and a couple of new ones emerge. All add to the fabric B2.

    To all contributors to this site; may all you wish for in 2012 come at least part way to you.

    Merry Christmas all from Patong Beach Phuket (where the sun is shining) actually forgot what it looked like! Brace yourselves for another challenging year ahead – which these days is more the norm. Punt high and follow through 🙂

    Enjoy the Christmas cheer which I have already started.

    Great message as always Peter.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, to Ryan O’Grady (you rock buddy) and to all B2 readers and the other contributors. 2012 looks set to by an amazing year with lots of changes in store.

    I just thought I’d share this other inspirational video that is right in line with your message of ‘live a little’ from TEDxSF – Louie Schwartzberg -on Gratitude. It’s the best video I’ve seen all year.

    This is MORE than worth the 10 minutes it will take to watch. Don’t give up before the 4 minute mark. You won’t give up after it. Enjoy.

    Happy Holidays + HNY

    Cheers Greg 🙂
