The idea of a new year -- a fresh start -- always appeals to me. I have been an avid goal setter for many years. Some years have been successful, while others have come up short. Even when I fail to reach my targets, I still believe I have learned and grown.
In 2012 I want to be a better person. A better husband, father, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, son, friend, vendor, teacher, customer, neighbor, writer, speaker, listener, citizen, etc....
This is a very vague desire and each of those things are hard to quantify. I do not feel I am awful in these areas, but I often teach others that if you are not moving forward you might be slipping behind. Stagnant is never good.
We humans are quick to be critical of others, but slow to examine our own short comings. I do not like to face my demons (we all have them), but I am going to do that in 2012. There will be no pie charts or graphs to know if I am succeeding, but I will be trying every single day.
Who else wants to play the "be a better person game"?..... Let's talk.
Have A Great Day.
