2014 is coming to a close and in a few hours it will be 2015. Already, friends are making plans for next year; businesses are preparing for tax season. The cycle continues. Artists are scheduling auditions, running lines, and preparing for a show or film next year.
Most gurus say that in order to be successful in the year to come, one must prepare now. I have written my goals and have scheduled appointments. However, in 2015 I want more balance. In 2014, I ran from one project to the next. I enjoyed some of it, but most of 2014 is a blur because I was preparing for the next project instead of being present.
In 2015, while we are climbing the ladder of success, I hope we all stop to smell the roses; cultivate new relationships and appreciate the present moment.
