FROM THE BULL | As per my tradition for my final post of the year I don’t write a “wisdom” myself but instead hand it over to one of the greats to wrap things up as we wind it down for another year. Last year you might recall the quote from Mohammed Ali who once said:
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”
It’s great advice from someone who lived and breathed this ethos.
This year we’ll hand it over to the greatest ice hockey player of all time, Wayne Gretzky, who said:
“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.”
And on another occasion:
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
He’s dead right on both fronts.
How was 2010 for you? Did you finish it in better shape than you started? Or worse? Or did you tread water and make no real progress? Whatever the answer is, don’t beat yourself up about it. Or congratulate yourself too much either. The past is the past and it can’t be changed. The only thing that matters is what you do next.
Choose to make 2011 a great year. Set some big goals and live and breathe them for the next 12 months. Force yourself to do the hard stuff and tackle the things you’ve been putting off. Make changes, if you need to, but get it done. Whatever else, get out of the shadows and into the blazing sunlight. It’s a lot more interesting out there…
I hope you enjoyed the wisdoms this year. Thanks for your support and I’ll see y’all in the New Year! Best holiday wishes to you and your families.
