As we approach Jan 1, the time many of us make promises to ourselves for the coming year, most of which don’t last much past Jan 3, consider making a couple of real commitments:

  1. I will cease the busywork that achieves nothing, checking emails every 10 minutes, moving paper, and all the other thousands of things that fill the time, but do not achieve anything
  2. I will push myself out of my comfort zone, take a risk, and do stuff, put some rubber on the road, make a difference, roll with the punches, and keep going.
