HOMPed!

It appears that I am HOMPed ("hoist on my [own] petard"). I now regret that I ever blogged about my favorite coffee house, Grandma Moses, because I have not been able to get a table there the last few times I have gone! What's that about? No table Saturday morning, no table Sunday morning. It's such a mixed blessing when a place you love gets a favorable, high profile review. You want it to do well, but you don't want to share it so much.

You may be thinking that the 20 or so people who read this blog are not enough to swamp the seating at Grandma Moses, even more so since I have not actually revealed the true name of Grandma Moses or even what town it's in. Yes, but the people who know...

This reminds me of a bit in a novel by my favorite espionage novelist, Alan Furst. The Parisian restaurant he always writes about -- the fictional Brasserie Heinenger -- gets shot up in the course of a hit by two Tommy-gun toting assassins. French guy and British guy the next day are discussing the hit, and this dialogue ensues:

FRENCH GUY: Well, in any case, I wouldn't try to dine there for a while.
BRITISH GUY: Yes, I suppose it will be closed for repairs.
FRENCH GUY: Are you kidding? Of course, it's open. But you won't be able to get a table there for weeks!

I was going to leave a little tip on New Years Resolutions and how to make the best of them.

Unfortunately, I would not be able to keep it brief.

Goal setting takes effort and you really have to know how to do it to do it well. Especially the follow-up.

That's why I've included a lot of FREE goal setting information on my website, to help folks like you be more successful.

In fact, you can start now, and get a head start on the new year - and the rest of your life.

Think goal setting isn't important? Spend a little time at stating goals and you'll change your mind.

Have a GREAT day!
 
After a good read on blogs like this I like to leave little tips on goal setting. You know, the things you used to dream of when you were young, or even now.

A lot of research has shown that only those who set goals are likely to achieve their dreams.

When is the last time you really sat down and wrote a few short term and long term goals down?

What? It's been that long!

A new year is coming. You could do the same things you did this year and achieve the same results you did with your life dreams last year, or you could visit measurable goals and read all the FREE information on setting goals and getting what you want out of life

OR

you could just piddle on through life hoping for the best, like most people do.

Which will it be?

You really can have a lot more of everything than you do now. All you gotta do is know what you want and have a plan.

Have a GREAT New Year!
