Happy New Year from TPOL: The Year & Hindsight Is 2020


Happy New Year from TPOL. Hindsight is 20/20 and the year is 2020. Looking back at this decade, I’ve made three mistakes.

  1. Moving back from Shanghai to Scottsdale in 2010 after starting my law career in Asia (buy my book, Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine, to read about that duck up).

    Should’ve stuck through the fog.
  2. In 2011, I moved from Scottsdale to Michigan to work for one of the poorest run companies in the world, General Motors, for a record-setting 80 days (buy my book, Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine, to read about that duck up).

    My Cadillac to take me to my cubicle.

3. That Time TPOL Moved to Mongolia in 2014

Apart from the hot water issues in my apartment (it either scalded me or was nonexistent), not being paid my salary, being fired while on a visa run in Osaka, and constructively being deported, I had a great time.

While those mistakes left me busted, I have made three great decisions to make up for it:

  1. I started The Points Of Life in March 2014 (see Simply The Best: 5 Years of T-P-O-L).

    Look mom, I’m on CNN!
  2. In August of 2016, I made good on my promise not to work for anyone again by only working for the best boss (visit Bachuwa Law if you have a consumer dispute).

3. In April of 2018, I moved to Puerto Rico and declared Victory Over Life #vol (see Despacito! TPOL Is Moving to Puerto Rico! Effective Inmediatamente).

How I commute to work now. Who needs a Cadillac when you have a golf cart?

There’s still a long way to go, and I’m sure there will be more duck ups along the way, but in the interim, I will enjoy the view from the top.

Happy New Year.
