Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2009! I believe this year is going to be a great one.

I've typically not been big on New Year's Resolutions (because they are rarely followed through on), but I am a fan of taking a look at our lives from time-to-time and adjust the things we've lost focus on. You know, the truly important things.

I also believe that accountability (sharing the things you want to change with friends and family and asking them to encourage you to succeed) is the key to long-term successful life change. So, here are the things I'm working on for 2009:

> Being there for my family.

This has been a focus for a long time for me, but I could still do better.

Specifically, I'm looking forward to having "Daddy-Daughter Dates" with my girls at least once a month. I know it will be way too soon and they'll be off living their own lives.

I also need to spend more time with Jeri. While we see each other a lot - at work and at home - we still need more time just hanging out together - away from working and parenting.

I'll share more of the things I want to improve over the next few days / weeks.

What about you? Where do you want to improve your relationships?
