instead of resolutions, make a not-to-do list!

Happy New Year!

If you are like most people, you probably (once again) made some 2012 Resolutions.  You know, those self-improvement “to do” lists that many of us tend to make at the dawn of a new year.  Well, imagine for a moment that you were to be the Michelangelo of this age, but you stayed so busy doing all kinds of things – good things – that you never got around to painting and sculpting.  You would end up missing the big plan and design for your life because you got distracted chasing the lesser things.

What a disappointment it would be for you and all the people who would have been blessed if you had stayed focused on your original purpose!

Consider making a list of things “not-to-do” in 2012.  Fill your list with things you do that don’t match your life’s purpose.  Start by spending time this week clarifying your life’s purpose, and then ruthlessly move everything else onto your list of things not-to-do!

You were born to be great.

Continued Success!
