How to Win

Hope and the New Year

Some people hope for a great New Year.

Others look toward the New Year with hope.

There’s a big difference.

Hoping by itself will never get it done.

Action accompanied by hope offers a better chance.

Edith Lovejoy Pierce said, “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves.”

New Year’s reminds me of the empty scoresheet just before a game. We fill those pages with deeds. We record what we do, not what we intended to do, planned to do, or wanted to do.

Amelia Earhart said, “Never do things others can do and will do, if there are things others cannot do or will not do.”

Happy New Year!
