Focus On 2011

2011 has officially arrived. A soft blanket of snow has covered the ranch, the ground is frozen and the air is crisp and clean. A new year presents the opportunity to all of us to reflect internally and consciously determine the road we follow. Over the past couple days I jotted down a few items for my plan of action in the coming year. What are you going to focus on?

Personally

  1. Thank the good Lord for the blessings bestowed upon you.
  2. Focus on family.
  3. Utilize your skills and talents to the best of your ability.
  4. Maintain a positive mental attitude.
  5. Help those less fortunate when able.
  6. Do your part to leave the country better off for the next generation.

Socially

  1. Share your personal story with civility and professionalism.
  2. Look for opportunities to build bridges.
  3. Challenge yourself to positively engage in communities outside your comfort zone.
  4. Learn to listen and discover.
  5. Find the joy in the journey.

Financially

  1. Buy only what you need, not everything you want.
  2. Prepare a budget and follow it.
  3. Maintain a diverse retirement portfolio.
  4. Prepare or update your estate plan.
  5. Make sure you have adequate insurance.
