Travel is rewarding. A wise man once said, “International travel will teach you more about business, politics, and law than all the degrees combined.” That man was Alexander The Author, better known to you as TPOL. After many years of changing the title, I finally went back to the original, perfect title and republished my book this year (see Bored at Home?). Buy Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine.
Travel is also a major distraction. Goals are put aside for the easy reward of new explorations. This year I had no choice but to stay home and in the words of the late Herman Cain, “reassess and reevaluate,” what I was doing. The first step was to figure out how I was going to stay and get fit on lockdown. I purchased everything such that I’d never have to go to a gym again (see TPOL’s Travel & Fitness Intro). And it worked (see No Turkey Trot This Year, But Still Thankful for Trolling).

Despite my aversion to Zoom, I also continued to fight the good fight against evil corporations (visit Bachuwa Law if you have a consumer dispute).
Back to things that matter, my golf game improved dramatically and literally overnight. No one told me that jumbo grip could make a revolutionary difference. These jambo hands as I call them, were previously out there using children’s equipment. Now, I challenge anyone for longest drive.
I’ve also taken on a new venture where I strive to bring some Arab flavor to the game of golf. Get in on the ground level and follow IQ Khameleon on IG.
Despite the crazy lockdown measures (see No Alcohol Sales on the Weekend, No Golf on Sunday: Another Stupid Lockdown Measure) that will continue into next year, I have preserved my mental sanity by establishing a daily routine that still included blogging and being innovative with how I kept myself entertained (see TPOL The Polyglot: How To Learn Multiple Languages). 2020 was a tragic year for the world but brighter days are ahead. I’m glad I took advantage of the downtime to set up the next chapter of my life but pump that sweet vaccine into my veins and let’s get on with it (see Punxsutawney TPOL: Leaving My Basement Trip Report). I need the next ten years to be as rewarding as the last ten (see Happy New Year from TPOL: The Year & Hindsight Is 2020).
