Transcript of Goals

Oh, how the years go by In 46 B.C.E. the Roman emperor Julius Caesar first established January 1 as New Year’s day. Janus was the Roman god of doors and gates, and had two faces, one looking forward and one back. Caesar felt that the month named after this god (“January”) would be the appropriate “door” to the year. In the modern day, a new year has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. Before we look forward, we must first look back What were your personal tragedies and triumphs of 2012?

The result, however, is not a new man, but a lost and dying man.”
Remember the past, plan for the future, but live for today, because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. “Knowledge is being aware that fire can burn; wisdom is remembering the blister” “Remembering the past gives power to the present” What would you say was the most important/biggest: Why is it important for us to remember all of these, the bad AND the good?

let us now look forward We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.
