The topic of economic growth has been in the news lately, and I am glad to see it’s getting attention.
I’m not the type of person who makes a long list of resolutions every time I get a new calendar. I find it easier to select one or two big things to focus on in the new year, and that usually sets me off on the right path.
When I was in government and in the private sector, I always took time at the end of each year to reflect on the accomplishments of the state government or the company I was running. More often than not, I found myself surprised at our ability to overcome challenges and move forward.
Life seems to flow a little easier when we have things we can count on. Perhaps it’s that hot cup of coffee from the corner shop each morning or football games on Sunday afternoons. It might be the same old haircut from your barber or a weekly phone call from a close friend.
