Before we know it, a new year will be here.
And that, of course, is the time to make resolutions.
The only one I’ve come up with so far is to do my best to be a better listener, and to enjoy the minutes I get with family and friends.
There’ve been times I know when the pressure of doing business, or making too many promises, have gotten in the way of both goals.
As a nation, I hope the year ahead will see a little less mindless chatter, a little less talking, and a lot more listening.
And a little more tolerance for those we don’t agree with.
Wouldn’t that make 2018 an incredible year?
That’s the way I see it.
