Happy New Year - Make it count!

Saturday, January 1, 2011
The start of a new year brings so much promise. It's thrilling in some respects. Many people make resolutions. Others set goals. I do a little of both. Sometimes keeping the resolutions and meeting the goals becomes challenging. Often, as the year moves on, I evolve, and what was important to me on January 1 just isn't as important on June 1.

As I reflect on 2010 and look forward to 2011, I'm keeping the mantra "Make it count!" in my mind. So often we go through our days, weeks, and months doing the same things over and over. Never stepping out of the box. At the risk of sounding cliche, our time on this Earth is short. You've got to make every moment count.

Is there something you want to do? Then do it. Is there somewhere you want to go? Then get there. If there is an obstacle, get it out of your way. It's up to you. No one else can do it for you. Look to the new year as a time to make things happen for you.

There are very few second chances. Don't live with regret. Make this year count!
