One of the blogs I check regularly (although its not on my blog roll - note to self: update blogroll)is Seth Godin's
. I really liked his entry today
- which he actually wrote 4 years ago. If you're looking for New Years resolutions, this entry is a good place to start. Some highlights:
In hindsight, the 1990s were the good old days. Yet so many people missed out. Why? Because it's always possible to find a reason to stay put, to skip an opportunity, or to decline an offer. And yet, in retrospect, it's hard to remember why we said no and easy to wish that we had said yes.
You get to make a choice. You can remake that choice every day, in fact. It's never too late to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence.
I liked that. I generally think trying to time decisions in life - whether it be investments of time, money or emotions - is generally a bad idea. Be aware of external factors, but don't let them drive decisions. Anyway, enough (dimestore) philosophizing. Seth said it better than I could anyway, so check it out....
