NEW YEAR, NO RESOLUTIONS To See Real Improvement, Set Goals
Now we are starting a new year, there are many things I am looking forward to, both professionally and personally. For Ascent Physical Therapy, we will be celebrating our third year of business. We are finally getting to the point where we can see the business grow and all of our hard work come to fruition. My wife, Jenny, will be attending her 20th high school reunion, which is pretty cool! She was part of the student government when she was a senior, so she’s partly responsible for organizing the event and sending out invitations. We are excited to catch up with all of Jenny’s old friends and classmates. I won’t have my 20th reunion for another year, and thankfully, I won’t have to plan it. We don’t have any big vacations on the calendar for the year, but it’s hard not to get excited in general. A new year means new experiences, and I look forward to seeing where 2018 takes us. During this time, people usually make resolutions. However, I am not one of those people. I do have certain things I want to do, both professionally and personally, in order to improve myself, but it’s an ongoing process throughout the year. I am constantly trying to change and improve my life, but I never got into the habit of creating resolutions to help me along the way. I don’t want the beginning of the year to dictate my success. Even though I don’t set resolutions, I do set goals. I remember making a goal to attend graduate school right after earning my undergraduate degree, but that didn’t happen exactly as I had expected. Due to my commitments to the Army, my graduate school goal was put on hold. I never felt like I failed to achieve my goal, but life happened, and I was forced to realign my aspirations. I suppose it could just be the optimist in me, but I feel as though failed goals give you the tools to realign your priorities and make adjustments, ensuring success in the future. This year, I’ve made it my goal to delve deeper into my continuing education. The last few years have been focused solely on the business. Because of that, I haven’t been able to explore and learn

more in the field of physical therapy. Now that things have calmed down, I want to start taking core classes on manual physical therapy to expand my education and refine my skills. I believe every physical therapist should strive to get better each day, and these classes are one way I can do that.
I hope you had a great new year. We will see you soon!
