For the new cycle, and for the new year that begins in ten days, I set my intent.

 To do the work best suited to me.

To live so as to be a blessing to others.

To find wisdom, and to recognize it when I find it, and to incorporate it into my life.

 Anything beyond these three – the pursuit of usefulness, love, wisdom — would be redundant. It is all implied in Lao Tzu’s admonitions:

 Manifest plainness

Embrace simplicity

Reduce selfishness

Have few desires
