Important to me

… quality time with the family

… learning new things in my job

…. treating others with respect, compassion and empathy

… keeping healthy and fit

…. balancing work and leisure

… unplugging

…. reading and growing (intellectually, not physically!)

…doing my best

Having said that, many of these I don’t do well enough.  I guess that is where new years resolutions, and sticking to them, come in!

Some good reading to help, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey.  Right now, I am about half way through.

This is a copy of the post I have submitted for Day 2 of the “Your Turn Challenge” started by Winnie on Seth Godin’s team.  It’s a fabulous initiative, urging participants to submit one post per day for a week.  But it is so popular that the administrators are overrun with posts to moderate, and mine do not seem to have made it through the system so far.
