A Surefire Way to Failure

It can be so easy to get distracted from our goals these days. The ever-present temptations of binge watching your favorite TV show, video games, sports, news, the latest celebrity gossip, the list goes on and on. One of the quickest and most successful ways to distraction though is in comparing ourselves to others. We all do it from time to time. Who’s at the top of the leaderboard? Who has the fastest car? Who has the biggest TV? And my personal favorite recently: who is the busiest, most stressed or has the biggest problems? Sometimes I think it’s a miracle anything gets done! But in this kind of world one thing I know is that the best way to fail is to spend your energies comparing yourself to those around you and picking some else’s path instead of creating your own.

On Reflection & New Beginnings

There’s something about this time of year that I’ve always enjoyed. As a kid it was the fun of the holidays, Christmas morning (what would Santa bring this year?) and a couple weeks away from school. As an adult it’s more about the chance to catch up with friends and family, to relax and slow life down for awhile and the happier than normal mood in the air. It’s a great time to reflect on the past year, to take stock of my life, to look forward to the future and to appreciate what I have.
