Obviously all of you have New Year Resolutions. If not, I hope you have some goals/tasks you believe will be accomplished this year. Go ahead and commit to these resolutions or goals and pay the price to realize them everyday.
Not having a goal or a purpose makes life boring and meaningless. I went bowling the other night with a few friends and as we bowled, we were all either trying to strike or at least knock down as many pins as possible whenever we threw/rolled the ball. Now, imagine if the pin deck was empty and all we had to do was throw the ball for no reason; it would get boring and meaningless after the 2nd person threw their ball.
Your goals are like the pins and you are the person holding the ball. Whatever you do with the ball is your action, you either strike or get closer to striking.
Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope and pray that you have a prosperous and enjoyable 2008.
