Happy New Year,
Usually I start every year with a very large list of goals broken down into categories like: spiritual, family, business, physical, etc. This year, with premature triplets born 12/3/09 at home, it seems almost crazy to think in longer terms than one day at a time. I find my goals much more basic and down to earth this year. For instance – things like: work hard and do the best with each day I have, daily enjoy and love my family as much as I can, make as many good healthy choices as I can each day. The only time I worry over a scale is when we are putting one of the newborns on it to ensure they are gaining weight and healthy. I guess, in some ways, this year is going to be much more about living in the now versus working towards what will be or could be.
The change in my family life is also having an impact on how I feel about business this year as well. My goal for this year is to keep things much more simple, to simply focus on providing high quality products and services. I feel less pressure to be swamped with upcoming projects and have more of a desire to take a handful of projects at a time, producing a quality final products for our clients much like a custom boat maker carefully crafts the vessels commissioned by his customers. I also want to focus this year on providing the highest quality of support and service as possible to everyone we work with. I really feel our business was and is being built on this type of old fashioned quality service.
So, to everyone that we have had the honor to work for over the years, I want to wish you a wonderful new year and encourage you to take one day at a time and enjoy enjoy each to the fullest.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present. ~Babatunde Olatunji
