Like most, I’m staring down the long corridor of the new year. Numerous hopes and aspirations fill my mind as I consider what 2010 may hold.
Currently, I’m in the throws of two huge development projects. The first is the implementation of an SaaS ERP platform for our online kayaking gear business – www.outdoorplay.com. The other is the finalization of the QuietSpacing(tm) On-Demand streaming video series. Once the dust settles from those efforts, I’m sure there will be other matters needing my immediate attention.
In spite of the stress and frantic pace, I often remind myself that
Memories are the currency of life
Simply stated: We have now and we had before. (We hope to have later.) Some of what we do now is what we’ll remember later. Consequently, when viewed as a continuum, the things we do that create memories are how we will gauge the success and quality of our lives. The more good memories we create, the more successful and happier we’ll feel.
So, when you’re racing headlong into the day, the week or the month, take a moment once in a while to ask yourself what you’re doing to create the kind of memories you’ll look back at and smile.
