Wait... Look Back!

The week between Christmas and New Year's is a popular time for the "look back" at 2010 articles. Pick up a newspaper or browse the web and you'll see lists and lists of top 10s... movies, books, news articles, photos, etc.

I suggest that each of us take a few moments before we ring in the new year and create our own Top 10 list. Doing so is a great way to reflect on the past year and remember those moments most important to us.

I was tempted to suggest we each make a list of the Top 10 "Best" moments, which you can certainly do. And maybe a Top 10 Memorable Moments list is a more appropriate approach. Why? Often things we consider "bad" at the time turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened to us. Time is a gift and can make the past make so much more sense.

So there is your assignment. Create a list of your Top 10 Memorable Moments in 2010 list before the clock strikes midnight on Friday.

And, if you're feeling really ambitious, find an empty journal and make this list every year. Happy New Year!
