The best thing about January 1 is the opportunity to start with a clean slate and make it the best year of your life. This year has a bonus because it is the start of a new decade. Where do you want to be in ten years? Everything is changing so fast it is impossible to predict what will happen in the next decade, but one thing is certain – you don’t want to look back and say “what do I have to show for the last ten years?”
The best way to make it a great decade is to use your voice to celebrate life and encourage others. In a world of political correctness and shock jocks, authenticity and niceness is increasingly rare and much more valuable. Share your story, your ideas, and your passion with your unique perspective and a smile. Become an adventurer and try something new every month, week, or day (choose your own pace).
I intend to follow my own advice. In the weeks to come, I’ll share my adventures and the lessons I’ve learned along the way. I hope that you’ll share yours, too. Why not start now? What are you planning for 2010 that you’ve never tried before?
