New Year Thoughts

2017 is now part of history and as we start the new year, here are some things to consider in 2018:

  • Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, revel in gratefulness for what you do have.
  • Instead of making a list of resolutions that you won’t keep, ask yourself what one thing you could do this year that would improve your life significantly.  Then do it.
  • Instead of getting caught up in the latest new fad, try light but regular exercise as a part of your daily routine.
  • Instead of being electronically connected 24/7, put your digital device away for hours at a time.  The messages will still be there when you return.
  • Instead of burning the midnight oil, get more rest in 2018.  Sleep is the most under-rated tool to equip your body and mind for each day.
  • Instead of tackling more than you can reasonably achieve, decrease your stress level through a more focused effort on what is really important.
  • Instead of eating food in an out-of-control manner, develop a common sense diet that provides structured nutrition and ultimately makes you feel and look much better.
  • Instead of never having enough time to be really good at what you do, build some margin in your life so you can improve the quality of your life.
  • Instead of never taking time for yourself and your personal mindfulness, consider meditation or prayer as way to quiet yourself down and get in touch with your higher calling.


Here are a few Business & Life Tips to think about….

Business Tips:

  • When somebody buys what you sell or contracts for a service you provide, it is validation enough that you provide real value.
  • Someone helped you in business when you were young. Take some time out of your life to help someone who needs it. Give back.
  • Two things are key in business: that people know what makes your company special and that you take personal responsibility for it.

Life Tips:

  • Take time to relax and think every day. You’ll be surprised what can come out of your head if you simply give your mind a rest.
  • We can’t go through life without some degree of suffering, but we can choose to keep it from paralyzing us indefinitely.
  • When people do something nice for you, thank them and do something nice for them. Return the favor with your own kindness.
