Lesson Of 2007

As I said in a recent email:

In a previous (and far more physically fit) life I had once thought that I might try out taking the test to be an officer in the British army. I crashed and burned of course, which, considering, was probably a good thing, but I'll never forget a piece of advice I was given: "When choosing a career to pursue you should never just focus on the nature of the job as this can change radically, you should look at the people and ask yourself whether they are really the kind of people you can stand to be with day-in-day-out, whether they are your kind of people".

Measured by this standard 2007 left me feeling a lot happier about my choice of career.
