I’m reading lots of top ten posts about 2013 and thinking about the last year. The last year was consumed with having to find balance. This was not having some idealistic want for balance, but rather out of necessity. What have I learned in these last 12 months? Well, I’m going to share my top ten thoughts from 2013.
1. Stay Healthy–this includes exercise, sleep, and eating right
2. Say no strategically
3. Work smarter–this meant rethinking my productivity
4. Make time for family and friends
5. Say yes strategically
6. Read, relax, and run
7. Be firm
8. Honesty is important
10. Happiness is more important than just about everything
The list is in no particular order. I will say this there is nothing like a health emergency to force you to rethink everything. I am forever grateful to the family and friends who were supportive during the last year, as we coped. I am looking forward to 2014. I am sure it will hold lots and I look forward to tackling it with my family by me.
