What Next ?

The title is a phrase often uttered in frustration after we have been plagued or cursed by a series of misfortunes. It occurs to me that such a statement might well apply to calendar year 2009 in that same context. The collective sentiment toward ’09 is that most of us are kinda glad it’s over, good riddance, and all that. That said, we also recognize that the clock doesn’t stop, even for a moment, when we lift our glasses on New Year’s Eve, or when we hang up the 2010 calendar. Time keeps right on ticking along, and to quote one of our past presidents, “history shall little note, nor long remember” however we might have celebrated the occasion, whether it was in grand fashion, or peaceful slumber.

It’s no coincidence that the manufacturer of your favorite brand of automobile has designed and provided you with only a few square inches of rear view mirror, compared to a dozen or so square feet of windshield. There’s just not a hell of a lot you can do about what you see in that mirror, but you are well advised to survey all you can see through that big expanse of the front window. Before you know it, that broad vista before you will slide right past you and shrink down until it, too, fits into that little mirror, smaller and smaller, until it’s as gone as yesterday.

So, it’s out with the old, and in with the new. It’s traditional that many of us select this milestone as an opportunity to try to improve on what we did in the past year. We strive to change ourselves, better ourselves, eliminate bad habits, become better citizens, better people, than we were before. New Years Resolutions, they’re called. “I resolve that in 2010, I will (fill in the blank)” Some work, most probably don’t. “Hope” and “determination” are two different things. The latter is likely the more effective strategy, but our resolve will quickly wither without the former, so I suppose we need a bit of both. We all hope we can do better, be better, in the year to come. It should work, because it’s really a one on one effort. One thing to remember though, no matter how desperately those around you seem to need improvement, even though it seems counter-intuitive, they will not welcome your efforts to improve them. Best Wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year !
