So as 2009 begins, what are everyone's resolutions?
I've gotten an early start on mine for the past two weeks. My resolution is to take account of all the organizations I'm a part of and ensure I'm doing my best work in all of them. I don't know about everyone else, but it's easy to pile on membership/leadership positions in your community, e.g. church, school, outside interests, community interests, and ESPECIALLY political groups. So I'm renewing my dedication and looking at each organization as if I'm a member of a board or council (which, in many cases, I am!) who must be completely prepared for every meeting, makes sacrifices, and lead by example. It's tough, especially while trying to be a full time student, but I care about everything I'm a part of and want to do a good job. I want to be motivated, enthusiastic, and help move things forward! So that's my resolution.
