A Passing Year

I’m intrigued with what’s happening in Samoa today  . . . or perhaps tomorrow. As you probably know, the Samoan government decided to skip across the international dateline this year. So, by government decree, December 30th, was outlawed this year. Thus, today, in Samoa is actually tomorrow, December 31st.

What would it be like to just lose a day?

What would it be like to just lose a year?

This is the time that a good many of us pause, reflect, and plan for the new year. Jeff Goins (http://goinswriter.com), a great writer-guru (of about half my age), says that we don’t need New Year’s resolutions. He says that what we need is simply RESOLVE.

We need to do something.

Looking back on 2011, what have you done?

If you’re really honest with yourself, I mean really honest, you’ve probably done a lot this past year. For some reason, most of us tend to downplay our accomplishments. I’m not a huge Woody Allen fan, but he was right when he said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up.”

So, I’m going to show up this year. I hope you’ll join me. Maybe we can figure out what to do with that other 20% together.

May the year 2012 be one of greatness for you, twelve months of blessings to you and by you, and 52 weeks of unmitigated joy sprinkled with tears, laughter, and warm moments.

Happy New Year!
