Why do we make them? We should be doing them if they are important enough.
What does it say about us when we sit down once a year and make them. That we quickly forget them.
How important are they when we have to remind ourselves that we need to do them!
Let’s all agree not to bother and simply do what we should always do.
Be good, be kind and be human.

Just been reading a great book written by Dan Sullivan it’s called the “ The Dan Sullivan Question”.
Now many of us might well have been asking these questions in our own way but it’s a great reminder that follow up and understanding the constraints and more:
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO ANSWER THE QUESTION AT ALL OR EVEN WANT TO?
What would you say? Could you answer the question?
How truthful could you be and how much courage would it take to get to the answer?
Sullivan mentions His D.O.S. principles – Dangers, Opportunities and Strengths
It reminds me of many conversations I have about courage and character and how much of those two do you have?
It’s a great read but more than that it will make you think or NOT and that is the first step you have to take!
Family – family comes first!
There are many things in our life that cannot be replaced; one is family, so take care of the ones you have. They are the most precious things in your life! They can never be replaced.
Career – some take it serious, some just show up! Make the right choice!
Your career is your wellbeing, it is who you are. Ask those who lose their job, ask them how they feel! You can climb the corporate ladder or stay in a dead end position. Retire on the job or turn it into a dream opportunity.
You are the owner of your career, it is your decision to make the best or the worst of it. So go on make your “day.” And do something that will change the rest of life.
Finances – Get it under control!
The economy is not looking very positive, but not as bad as the news portrays it to be (for most.) So, don’t wait until you are in that dark hole before you start digging your way out.
Ask the question, is it a want or a need, can I live without it? Start paying off old debt and quit trying to keep up with the Jones!
Volunteerism – good for the soul!
Everyone should take a turn at volunteerism. It reminds us quickly how fortunate we are. All businesses should have programs to encourage employees to work as volunteers.
It should be listed under: personal development and employee benefits, because of the sense of pride and satisfaction they will earn.
It builds leadership for our younger generation, who in turn will be more apt to get involved in their communities and the work of non-profit agencies. Business also will benefit from the role in society, as will society. A win-win for everyone!
Contributions – hands are out!
It is time to choose from the many non-profit organizations that seek your money. Choose your donation percentage and fund your passion.
You cannot do it all! Take a percentage of your income that will be donated, and stick to it. If you cannot give money, give time! You will find it fun and rewarding and will make friends along the way.
Best Friends – are the best!
Best friends are what keep us going. They are the ones we vent to, cry with and dream with. Conversations that are never repeated. They give us hugs when needed, they remind us tomorrow is a new day.
Best thoughts – Remember to check in on these thoughts every day!
Happy New Year! It is yours to achieve what you desire.
