It’s hard to believe we are on the cusp of a new decade. Most can still vividly remember the turn of the century from 1999 to 2000. My recollection is of hysteria regarding disasters that were certain to occur with the new century: computers and telephone systems being corrupted worldwide, banks collapsing, and power grids failing. And yet, in spite of all the doomsday scenarios, I also remember watching the broadcast from Times Square where I saw nothing but joy, excitement, and love. Such seems to always be the case as we approach a new year: many fears but also hope and anticipation of good things to come.
As 2020 approaches, it is inevitable that we consider some of the things hoped for in 2019 or in other years past that, for one reason or another, were never accomplished. What are you looking to do with this new decade?
Many will set goals to eat better, to exercise more, and to be more active. Others may look at personal characteristics or professional skills they’d like to acquire or develop. Still, others will set goals to earn more, to save more, or to take steps to prepare for their financial future. Whatever your goals or resolutions might be, may 2020 be your greatest year yet. Happy New Year!
