2013 Recap / 2014 Goals

First, let's recap 2013?


1. Lose that weight - get down to 175 max
  • Got down to 172, maintained it for about 5 months, then I got hungry.  Now I'm back to 179. 
2. Exercise 3 times per week (at least 1/2 hour on treadmill to start - expand from there)
  • My reality is I'm lazy, other than skiing, I did manage to get on the treadmill once or twice a month...maybe in 2014
3. Increase quality time with my wife
  • Sharon and I did spend more time going out to dinner, movies, socializing, etc. 
4. Poker:
Cash in at least one significant tournament WSOP; Borgata Poker Open; WPT; etc.
Increase bankroll by $20k
  • This goal, I am proud to write was accomplished, not only did I increase my bankroll by more than $20k, I cashed in the WSOP Main Event.  I placed 471 out of 6329 players (top 7.4%); buy in was $10k; cashed for $24,480.
1. Achieve ISO registration in Blauvelt
  • Blauvelt is about ready for registration; senior management has put a hold to registration at this time
2. Complete MiniTab Training
  • Registered for training in Feb but it was cancelled; I was never approved to attend again
3. Improve the resin reprocessing process
  • We've established a skeleton return specification and identified the source of problematic materials; now the task is to get the customer to comply with our requirements
4. Visit 6 customers
  • Visits this year included: PSI, Berry Baltimore, Rexam BevCan (2), Plastek; 4 for 6 
5. Implement Supplier Management including 4 key supplier audits - this is for the flexibles division
  • This was taken over by the new Director of Quality - taken away from me
