Resolution for 2013

18 Jan

Hi friends,

2013 is round the corner. Many have set the plans for 2103. Some are still thinking and wondering, I have done that in the past, and where has it taken me….

To all your questions / doubts, I would sincerely suggest you revisit and list your 2013 resolutions. Some might find it had to start. To help here is a starting point….

I shall later this week follow this article with another on the process of what needs to be done…Until then have a great time enjoying the festival season and just send some time on yourself… reflecting… silence is amazing.

Cheers David Nair
