Self-Inventory: Tool for New Year

Ahhh... the New Year. September can be regarded as more of the same... or the start of a new year, a new chance to upgrade your lifestyle and establish new goals. To accomplish this fresh start, I recommend the following Self-Inventory:

A few years back, I found myself working four nights a week, involved in volunteer efforts that often took me away from family, and frequently, preoccupied me with a million worries. Not only was this detrimental to my family relationships, but frankly, it was not good my mental health. My "importance test" these days goes something like this: If the activity requires my evening time, it must involve atleast one other member of my family. This cuts out alot of meetings... but not the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or Date-Night!
