I totally agree. Also, companies should shares their why, motto, or slogan with their team. It should be posted everywhere. Let people know WHY they are doing what they are doing they part, and it is not just for a paycheck.

Jerry Fletcher I am happy you enjoyed it. Here is a fun story for you. An associate of mine is an painter. He has been working on a piece for Rick and Marty Lagina, the brothers who bought the rights to much of Oak Island on the south shore of Nova Scotiato trying to solve the mystery. Painting this piece, he never new the finished piece yet has always been moving forward. I have watched him paint at shows over the last couple years and keep noticing differences in this piece. It all began with a photo of the island where the dig site was. He painted the photo, his first domino. From there he began to paint history. Yet, each time he finished, he saw something else needed. It was always moving forward. It began with big details of the locations of people, soon to details of the crests on the armor.

I agree the New Year is pretty arbitrary but many people still use it to spark them!
