I don’t have a lot of big goals/resolutions for 2014. No crazy amount of money I need to make – no marathons I have to run – no huge milestones to cross off the bucket list. I don’t have an epic “10 things you must do to make 2014 the best year ever” article for you to read.

Resolutions are ideas we throw up to drive us forward toward accomplishing and DOING more. But I don’t want to sacrifice my happiness and the happiness of those closest to me in pursuit of DOING more. My grand vision – my mission for the year ahead is simply to live more fully, do great work, and focus on enjoying the journey along the way.

Maybe you have a bucket list for the year ahead. Maybe you’re reading this with a massive hangover with no motivation to accomplish a damn thing. Take advantage of this moment, and the next, and the next, and the next. All those small somethings – those little moments – create opportunity, evoke change, and develop memories you’ll never forget.

It’s not about saying you can – or telling yourself that you can’t. As Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”

Believe it, my friends, and you’ll find all the resolutions, audacious goals, and incredible dreams you have for yourself are but a moment away from becoming reality.
