It’s tradition: at the end of every year, I take the time to think through what I hope and expect the next to be like. Sometimes it’s a word, or a phrase, but it’s always something.
Some of the characteristics of excellence are time, effort, saying no, focus, commitment, intentionality, and the like. It’s not that I don’t already practice these disciplines, it’s just that I have a tendancy to compromise them for the “opportunity” of something new…different…more interesting.
I recently heard someone say…
If the grass is greener on the other side, try watering your own.
I think I’ll do just that.
