My Thermal Resolutions

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions but I thought a few “thermal resolutions” might be in order. In 2011 I resolve to:

• I’ve been in this business for 27 years and sometimes I tend to get stuck in a rut, so in 2011 I resolve to challenge myself on what I think I know about thermography.

• It is too easy to spend too much time on a computer, so in 2011 I resolve to get out in the field with an imager in my hands and look at my world, at least several times each week.

• I’ve learned nearly all I know about thermography from others and have honestly, barely even scratched the surface, so in 2011 I resolve to learn more from my professional colleagues.

• Sometimes the best learning comes from unexpected places, so in 2011 I resolve to visit public schools more often with my thermal imagers and be surprised by the insight children so often have.

• I am “rich” by comparison to so many people in the world—therefore in 2011 I resolve to apply my skills and knowledge to improving the circumstances of others.

• Life can be so darned serious and full of problems—in 2011 I resolve to have fun, thermally of course, and share that fun with others.

• As an expert in the industry, it is too easy to talk and talk and talk, so in 2011 I resolve to listen—to my customers, my students, my colleagues, and consider carefully what they have to say.

• Often times we forget that we are not moving through life alone, so in 2011 I will take time to thank those around me for the many contributions they make to my life’s journey.

I resolve to hop out of bed each morning and enjoy exploring my Thermal World!

• With the intense competition in the imager manufacturing market, in 2011 I resolve to increase my commitment to providing end-user feedback that helps develop more useful products.

• In a world that seems to be well on its way to getting dangerously warmer, in 2011 I resolve to do what I can, both personally and professionally, to help reduce our carbon footprint.

That’s probably enough “resolving” for one morning! I hope my resolutions inspire you to enjoy life and learn more in your part of this amazing world.
