My New Year's Resolutions

This is the time of year when people sit down and reflect on their past year and look to the upcoming year and the changes they will make.  In my reflections, I came up with the 10 following New Year's Resolutions:

1.      I won't take it personally when someone describes my personality as overkill before looking in the mirror at themselves.

2.      I will spend more time sharing with my friends and family.

3.      I resolve not to laugh when I read incredulous claims since I know facts are much different than fiction.

4.      I'll remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery when I see others copying me.  

5.      I'll assume the best regarding the intentions of others.

6.      I won't cough "&%$#" into my hand when I hear others telling me they can make me better.

7.      I'll reaffirm my belief that you get what you pay for.

8.      I will take pride in the rigor with which we engineer and test our products understanding the risks of taking short cuts.

9.      I'll remember all that glitters isn't gold.  Great innovations aren't ambiguous, they help people work smarter.

10.  I'll take time to appreciate our past while looking forward to our future.


Here's to looking forward to a great 2011 and the continuing success of Office 2010 and introduction of Office 365!
