There’s a quote from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that I think is a really great way for us to plan for the coming year, especially in such a difficult and unpredictable time. “What’s the key to success? The key is, there is no key. Be humble, hungry, and the hardest worker in any room.”
One thing I’ve always done – and imparted to my sons – is to make a list of the things I can control and the things I can’t control.Both are critical – it’s good for us to quantify what we can’t control so that we make peace with that reality and then shift our energies to the things we can control.
In that sense, my resolutions for the new year are the same as always – as The Rock says, to be “the hardest worker in the room.” That doesn’t mean one is better than anyone else – it simply means you won’t be outworked by anyone else.
I want the same things we all want – more time with our families, more time to ourselves and to sit with a cold beer while we watch the sunset next to the person we love most in the world. My sons keep telling me I need to do that with a Shiner Bock, but I’m just fine with a Coors or a Pabst.
I really recommend that folks take that same approach – well, the beer is optional – and really consider what they can change before they make resolutions. It’ll help you not only focus on the important things, but give you the piece of mind to focus on the most important resolution of all: to take care of yourself and make time every day to appreciate your success, no matter how big or small it may feel at that moment.
