A Season Of Giving…


I don’t know about you, but Christmas is definitely one of my favorite times of the year.

Well, actually Fall is my favorite time of the year… Christmas is just my favorite holiday… so I suppose what would make a perfect situation would be to move Christmas to October.

Then again, I like the week between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, so I guess we would kinda have to move New Year’s Day back a few months also.

Hmm… so here’s what I’m thinking. This is going to mess up a lot of vacation plans and fiscal years and such, so… at least for the time being… let’s just plan to leave it like it is.

But I do have another idea you can implement almost at once.

With just seven days until the new year, most everyone who plans to make resolutions probably already has a good idea of what they’re going to be… and we’ll speak some more about that in a few days.

But here is a thought.

Most resolutions tend to be pretty “me-focused”… you know, lose weight, make more money, quit this or that, improve whatever… but, why not turn that around?

Why not focus on someone else?

Yes, this is one thing I love about Christmas. On this day, when one third of the Earth’s population celebrates a 2000 year old gift that was given to the world… and another third celebrates the gift’s that they give to each other… why not carry the spirit of giving forward, and make a year of it?

Yes, why not spend some time in the next week identifying the needs of another individual… someone who has no means whatsoever to return the favor… and then resolve to make one of their dreams come true in 2010?

And then please write and tell me about it… I’d love to connect with you.


Merry Christmas.
