Personally, I would say 2012 was great. It will be remembered as one of the most significant years in my life because it saw the birth of my son - who is named after my father who passed away in 2003. In this light, I cannot complain. I registered other successes last year - successes, that I would rather not bore you with. Besides, this entry is for you, not about me.
I wish you all what you wish yourself this 2013 and I hope you achieve your heart's desires. I believe in the power of written goals. Hence - as I have done in previous new year messages in 2011 and 2012 - I encourage you to write down what you would like to achieve in 2013. Write them down where you can see them daily and be reminded. Written goals make it easier for you to better assess your achievement at the end of the year and hold you accountable for what you failed to do. You must not have a complete list from the word go. Feel free to add goals to the list as time goes on.
Keep in mind that it is not enough to simply write down goals. Get out there and do what it takes to achieve them. Strike achieved goals off the list and proceed to the next. Examine the list at the end of the year and have a conversation with yourself.
HAPPY 2013. The good news is that we all have the power to make it better, in terms of achievements, than 2012. Set clear goals, write them down and go get them.
Laugh, love, live. God bless.
