Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

As this year draws to a close I hope that the MMM has played a small role in challenging you to be a better you over the last twelve months.  Enjoy your time with family and friends this week and prepare to hit the ground running for 2017 next week!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


What are you known for?

Certain cities are known for specific things, like food, culture, and architecture.  Celebrities and politicians are often famous for specific good deeds, or maybe more often, certain indiscretions.  Years in history are known for what happened during them.  What are you know for?

It is a question often discussed in real time about public figures, but for a lot of us it does not come up until someone leaves this earth.  We tend to discuss legacies only once someone passes away.  But we are known for who we are now, and what we do while we are alive!  Our regular daily behavior leads us to have a certain reputation.  Our legacy is being built daily as we speak and act.  It can be changed before we die!

How will you be remembered for “the dash” of your life?  What will you be known for during the years between your birth and death?  If you don’t like the answer, get to work on how to change it while you still can!


Be The Best You Can Be

Are you a different person in certain circumstances?  Does your personality literally change in some situations?  I tend to be incredibly impatient behind the wheel of my car.  Patience is not my strength at any time, but it is even worse when I am driving.  I need to work on that part of my life.  (And probably several others as well.)  It is not good if there are situations that bring out the worst in you.  Are you different when you have been drinking?  What about when you are under stress or frustrated?  Or just when you are running behind schedule?  Maybe you are really different around certain people?  Do you change who you are when you get home from work? 

We should strive to be the best we can be in all situations.  Circumstances should not dictate our personality or values.  Granted, certain circumstances require different types of responses, but they should not totally change our behavior for the worse.  Be the best you that you can be in every situation.
