Consultants & New Years Resolutions

Thursday, 27 December, 2012 - 8:11 am

Have you ever spoken to a "consultant", ie, a business consultant? Their job is to enter a company, observe and talk to people while taking notes of their findings. Only after a few weeks would they offer suggestions. The goal is to improve the way the company does business and help them improve what they do. 

New Year’s Resolutions, on the other hand, do not work that way. We all know the drill about New Year’s resolutions; “This year I will ...” and it turns into a distant memory by February... (more on how to avoid that  here). I would like to share with you a different approach... innovative? maybe! crazy? I think not.

Let us take upon a monthly resolution. “This month I will...” thus, throughout the year, we would have "tasted" different options. We would see what works for us.

For example:

  • January - I will join the weekly class - the session begins Jan 2nd
  • February - I will learn to read Hebrew (email me for more info)
  • March - I will attend prayer services on Friday night 

The way I view it - We can take some small steps to see what we can sensibly add to our lives -making the daily grind more then just living; essentially being alive and adding a deeper dimension to our reality.  

Are you in?

While there are no services this week at Chabad, take a moment this shabbos and meditate about what YOU can do to ensure that every person in this community is touched to be a better person. 

Have a great shabbos and we will be thinking of you. 

See ya next week. 

Rabbi Kushi Schusterman

I want to take a moment to thank those who have joined the year end campaign - Thank YOU. We couldn't do it without you!
