I have failed. I set out to write one essay per month and I missed one for November. I actually had it in the works, but I got wrapped up in a consecutive string of long work days and I just couldn’t get myself to sit in front of a computer at home after sitting in front of a computer all day long. I know… Weird, right? So here I am, at the end of 2017, in the midst of our annual company holiday shutdown, still trying to finish the year strong.
