NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

I know, I know, every year at this time the same old crap.

First off, Happy New Year to all.

2011 is in the rearview mirror and it’s time to move forward into 2012.

How often do you hear people talk about their New Year’s resolutions?

So I figured, ‘why not’?

Well here it is, my resolutions for 2012:

1-Be a better husband.

2-Be a better father.

3-Be a better coach.

4-Write much more than last year and finish my 2 book projects.

5-Exercise more.

6-Read more books.

7-Eat healthy.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Respectfully,

Steve
