I was out the other night at a social event visiting with people I had not seen in quite awhile. During my visit, one of the discussions turned to the good people doing the good deeds, doing things for others, being helpful. It also turned to discussing some people who are not being so helpful. I think when you have a large group of people there will be some of those. I grew up in a huge cliche of people in my hometown, then was part of a crew in college and now I am friends with some of the social media folks in Boston. Heck there have been times in my past when I was pretty damn useless. I’d like to think I have improved over the years, but like everyone else I am a constant work in progress. As 2010 comes to an end and 2011 begins I feel the need to “prune back” the social. I want to focus on the people in my life that matter most. I want to focus more on relationships, and not just the facebook kind. Seeing people in person, talking, interacting. I feel the whole social media thing has made me a little lazy. I have been a casual observer but a non participant in lots of peoples lives, I hope to put an end to that. I really want to be a better friend. I also hope to Start up Metrowest Media Makers with Roy Kranz here early on in 2011. Its time we started acting locally to reach globally. I want to make a difference for others in Metrowest. I also want to give more of my time to non profits and help get their message out utilizing video, and or audio visual presentation.
Lastly I want to be an even better Dad, lots of people think I am a great dad. I think I still have lots of work to do.
At the Holiday break, What are you thinking about? What are your plans for 2011?
How can I be a better friend?
