    Happy New Year George. Every day is both a gift, and an opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally. In 2014 I will be personalizing the Genius Hour concept into my daily life. If each of us improves, then all of us improve. Here’s to a great year of growing and sharing!

    Happy New Year George! Thanks for the great message to start 2014! I love the fact that you focus on the fact that individuals have ownership over the outcomes in their lives. While I have a great deal of faith that we are blessed with beneficial situations, I agree with you that it is up to us to take action and reap the rewards that these situations can provide.
    I also think it is important that people who feel in a rut need to do something differently, something as small as wearing a tie to work everyday. What role will they take in changing their own situation?
    I am looking forward to 2014 and all of the amazing unknown opportunities that are ahead!

    Happy New Year! What a great message, and reminder that life doesn’t just happen to us, we have control over how we react to what’s happening.
    Blessings for a great start to the new year!!

    I agree wholeheartedly and have experienced that with great change comes great opportunity in both my personal and professional life. 2014 will see my school closed. One of my goals for the year, is to lead my students, staff and families through this change believing that the new school (a consolidation of three small rural schools) will provide incredible opportunities. I endeavor to instill an attitude of “celebrating what is right with the world” spoken about by Dewitt Jones. This takes daily commitment and positive energy on my behalf. Thanks for the timely reminder!
