See Ya, 2009! Hello, 2010!

As I sit here preparing for the big event tonight, I can’t help but reminisce about Cory. While doing so, it just reminds me of the past ten years in general in my life. What a decade it has been! I’ve been fortunate to make a good career out of doing things I am passionate about, and I can honestly say I love what I do. My Gnomedex conference is heading into its tenth year in 2010, and I promise you we’re already working hard to make it as awesome as we possibly can!

I’m not one to make resolutions, really. Instead, I prefer to set goals for myself. I know that if I say “I will… “, it will likely not happen exactly the way I planned. Life gets in the way. Priorities can change in an instant depending on what’s going on around you. I would rather just set some goals for myself, my community, and my work. What goals or resolutions do you have?

I could never have accomplished everything in the early part of this year that I have if it weren’t for all of you – the community. Your support, strength and enthusiasm have driven me further, helping me to reach for new heights personally and professionally. You guys (and gals!) are the backbone of everything I do. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here, and going along for the ride with me on our journey into 2010!

Have a happy, healthy and safe New Year, everyone!

  1. Lovely words Chris. I too have probably had the most rewarding decade of my life so far, and achieved many ambitions throughout the “Noughties” (urgh).

    Here’s to a great decade, and looking forward to tonight.

    Happy new year!

  2. This year was pretty rough for me, both my personal and professional life took serious blows. Thanks to the great community at geeks, ridiculous youtube videos, and the support of my family I am restarting my life.

    In this upcoming year, I will be starting a new career in IT, getting my certs and moving out of my parents house (for the second time…nothing like moving back in with them when you’re an adult eh?)

    Also, I’m going to buy an FX Lightsaber. I’m single dammit, and its time to treat myself.

  3. Wow Chris, i’ve only just started following you in 2009, and o.k. i don’t expect you to include me in your backbone, but i know you will have the next best 10 years of your life. Me, i’m setting goals on becoming internet famous, you are my idol Chris Pirillo. You are. You are.
