We are near the time when we all take a break, eat, drink and be merry.
And why not? A volatile world has battered us for twelve months.
Now we need to sit back and think.
This and the next two Daily Paradox articles will endeavour to help you do that.
Today we ask you five questions.
 Has 2019 given you all that you wanted? If not, make a short list of the things you didn’t get. There are probably several achievements in 2019 of which you are proud. Which is the one you would most like to be remembered for?  If you could live physically and mentally well to be 150 years old what would be your main objective in those extra fifty years?
 Which world issue is most important today? What are you doing to help deal with it?
 If you could live physically and mentally well to be 150 years old what would be your main objective in those extra fifty years?
 To whom have you given the greatest help in 2019? What was the help you gave?
OK so there are more than five! What matters is that you ponder the answers.
If you feel like writing them down and sending them to us we will do what we call ANALYSIS ONE on them. That is a quick, ‘first flash’ analysis. It is always interesting.
Meanwhile, we wish you all the joys of the Festive Season or, as we prefer to call it, Christmas. Our virtual Christmas Card will be the next Daily Paradox.
