Making resolutions is a pastime in which we can all indulge but committing to our resolutions is only for the few of us who are serious about being the best we can be. This level of commitment starts with understanding that each of us is a leader and a role model for others. Yes, each of us. The issue is not whether we are leaders and role models. We are. The issue is whether we recognize our responsibility and commit to being the best we can be with everyone, whenever and wherever we engage with other people. — Are we the example they should be following?

Here are my twenty resolutions to be the best I can be with other people. Whether you choose to join me in any or none of the resolutions is your call. I am only letting you know that I think they will serve me well and am comfortable with having you hold me accountable for following through on each resolution.
