Do you remember?

A year ago today, do you remember where you were?

I don't mean, "I was on a business trip in California". 

Where were you in your life?  Your business or career?  Your relationships?  Your family?  Your health and fitness?

Are you more trusted? More skilled? More connected to people who care about your work?  A better manager?  More patient mom?  Healthier, in some way?

How many people would miss your work if you stopped contributing it?  We know what would likely happen if you stopped contributing at home.  :)

New Year's resolutions rarely work, because good intentions don't often survive a collision with reality.  They look and feel good on paper, but if created in a bubble, when the rubber meets the road those "changes" tend to run out of gas. 

But an inventory is a helpful tool, a way to keep track of the areas you've grown, improved, and ultimately mastered.  It's rewarding too to look back and see how far you've come.

Only 15% of Americans have a gym membership.  Even worse, though, ONLY 8% of those with a membership actually use it.  Nearly everyone that said they were going to start working out in the new year, have already fizzled after a mere 2 week effort. 

I would say that you're in rare and elite company by showing up to your daily workout. And I'll also take a low risk guess that you've grown quite a bit in the past 12 months.

I can't wait to have this conversation with you next year, after another 12 months of prosperity!
