A New Beginning

January 01

Happy 1st day of 2012 everyone.

I always prefer the beginning of a new year as it’s hopes and dreams have yet to be dash on the rocks of reality yet… it is still full of hope, wonder and optimism.

I typically don’t do the whole resolution thing, I have set goals that I work towards all the time and in reality a new year is just a time for me to reaffirm those goals and the path I’m taking to achieve them, with that said here are my top expectations and goals for the new year.

  1. Finish Paramedic School – It won’t be enough for me to just finish (not that that isn’t an achievement in and of itself) but to finish school with a job offer from the service that runs the program… anything less will be failure in my mind.
  2. FINALLY quit smoking for good… There I said it in public even so I can’t take it back now.
  3. Start taking more time for ME – exercise and more trips to the mountains, I need to find a better balance between work, school, family and personal stuff – somehow I always put myself last
  4. Find a way to step up into some sort of leadership position within EMS – either as a teacher, or mentor or even with NAEMT to help spread what EMS is capable of and help us get to where we want to be
  5. To post more regularly here – It’s a great release for me and really helps keep my stress level down
  6. An end to 10 years of struggle – fingers crossed
  7. Advocacy – More of us need to be part of the solution
  8. To write at least one article for publication in either JEMS or EMS World – Several of you have suggested it, I just haven’t listened – I hear you now – I’ll give it a go at some point

I keep hitting enter like I’m going to keep adding to the list, but those are already pretty lofty goals for a year that’s going to end the world in December…

How about you – What are your top resolutions oe expectations for the coming year – feel free to share them below.

    I’m going to take at least one person to the hospital who actually needs it.

    And find some solid black sneakers to replace my boots.
