Your New Year’s whisky resolution?December 29th, 2009
I usually take some time between Christmas and New Year’s Day, like I’m sure many of you do, to take a look at my life and see how I can improve it in the New Year.
My whisky resolution for the new year is to promote this wonderful world of whisky as much as I can, while still keeping my life in balance.
Balance, to me, is very important. Whisky is a big part of my life–and I hope that it always will be–but it’s certainly not the only part. In fact, I want to make sure that I put my family, friends, and health before whisky.
I think to be the best at something, the sacrifice is just too great. A couple months ago, I was chatting with a fellow whisky writer and he told me that, in the past year, he only had two days off–including weekends!
I want to be a friend to whisky, not a slave to it. If that means that I’ll never be the most influential person in whisky, that’s fine with me. As long as I am, in some way, helping you along your whisky path, then I am content.
So, that’s my resolution for the new year: Whisky? Yes. But in balance!
How about you? What’s your New Year’s whisky resolutions?
