A look at the new year

It has been a good year filled with so many life altering changes. I got engaged to a wonderful woman, we bought our first home and have a great job. I am very grateful to the Lord for all of the wonderful things he has given me in 2009.

But now I look at 2010. This is a year with even greater challenges but even better rewards. This is the year I get married, furnish our new home and transition to working in communications once again. It’s easy to be blinded by the silver lining but it’s important to remember that as you move up, you are just in position for the next step. As soon as you stop giving your best, you will stop growing. No matter what you do, people are watching and either you are being productive or not.

So when you look at 2010, I encourage you to look at this coming year as an opportunity to shine, to start pouring your best effort into everything you do and prepare to be amazed by the great things that happen when you do. Even if it is just the satisfaction of a job well done, which should be your main reason in the first place, there is always something great to be gained by giving your best.
