Although the shade off the light may brighten things up some the focus needs to be clear so you can realize your vision for 2012!  Fun post and photo.

Gary - such a little word which has such a big meaning for everyone.  Focus should be written on a sticky note pressed on the laptop.

Have a happy, healthy and prospeorus new year 2012 :)

Gary, I didn't wear a lampshade this year, those days are long gone. But I am trying to focus on things that will get me going, improve my business and bring me a bit of happiness along the way. That and remain positive, that is the most important thing of all.
