Daily Archives: January 1, 2017


Time and dates are artificial. Intrinsically they have no importance, although accountants and bankers think otherwise. It is now 2017, and we’re all supposed to make resolutions for the new year. That’s okay—improving one’s self is always a good thing regardless of the date. I generally don’t make New Year’s resolutions because they last about three or four days. However, this year I do have a few:

  1. I’m going to try to spend more time just being with my wife. I’m often so busy doing so many other things that being together gets pushed off the agenda.
  2. I will try to share thoughts more often on this blog
  3. I will maintain a positive attitude because I know that no matter what happens, it’s going to turn out consistent with God’s will.
  4. I will try to do what’s right—not just the easy decisions, but the tougher decisions that I often totally avoid. In other words, I will choose doing good over doing well.

No, I won’t tell you when I’ve failed at these. Instead, I’m going to pick myself up, dust myself off, and start again.

May your 2017 be Vulcanesque—”Live long and prosper.”
