Good Morning Team,
2018 is coming to a close and 2019 is upon us. As I look back over the events of the past year, I can see some things that I would really like to change or do over, but I also see those that were pretty good or when I managed to do something right. It is possible that others may see it differently, but I think that I have more checkmarks in the win than the loss column. Anyway, I hope that you can look back and feel the same way about yourself.
Since it’s a tradition in the setting of resolutions during this time of year, I have decided upon a few goals for myself. Specifically, I want to: eat better and exercise more, listen a lot more than I speak, and spend more time reading than watching television. Since this weekly email is about safety, I have also resolved to remain vigilant here as well. Whether or not I am successful largely depends on my focus in adhering to them and the benefits that begin to be seen.
It’s pretty obvious that eating better and exercising more is good for my overall health. I might lose some weight, or at least redistribute it J. Listening more than I speak will benefit me since I expose myself to other’s point of view and that may just help me to avoid proving to others that I know nothing. And reading, as long as it isn’t always the National Enquirer, will certainly broaden my horizons more than watching reruns on Netflix ever will. Do I really need to explain how a continuing focus on safety aides me?
Whatever resolutions you set for yourself, please make safety a prime consideration. It doesn’t take all that much effort and the benefits can be priceless if we actually avoid accident, pain and suffering. Let’s all resolve to keep 2019 as accident and injury free as we possibly can.
Happy New Year and stay safe!
