I don’t typically make New Years resolutions. The reason for that is simple: once I’ve truly committed to doing something I do it. I don’t wait for the turn of the year to make commitments.
Like all human beings I do, however, have aspirations. Wishes, maybe. I thought I’d share a few of those with you.
My aspirations for myself this year are to be able to shepherd several clients successfully through some very difficult and painful transitions and to add one more solid client to my list.
For this blog my aspiration is to be more practive in nudging the conversation in more productive directions. I don’t really care whether I have more readers or get more links from major blogs. Otherwise I just plan to keep on doing what I’ve been doing—trying to be as fair and open-minded as I possibly can in considering what appear to me to be the most important issues of the day.
For my country and for the world my aspirations are greater peace, prosperity, health, and happiness. A very tall order. I’m afraid we’ll do well this year if we are able to stay out of another armed conflict. Just this morning I’ve seen saber-rattling in the directions of Syria, Iran, and China. And that was without looking for it.
