What is Your New Year’s Resolution?

What is your New Year’s resolution?


Here’s what selected Takacs McGinnis staff members have resolved to do in 2022.


Barbara McGinnis, Attorney and Partner

I resolve to never make a new year’s resolution. Resolutions to do or not do something should be based on more than a calendar page. Everyday I strive to improve myself in some way.


Chris Johnson, Attorney and Partner

My resolution is to work out five or six times per week and drop my weight to 210. When I’m in shape, I feel better. When I feel better, I am much more productive in all aspects of my life, and I’m the best version of myself, both professionally and personally. It makes me a better attorney for my clients, and a better husband and father at home.


Pati Bedwell, Elder Care Coordinator

My resolution is to not make resolutions. I don’t like making them because I set myself up for failure by not having realistic goals. I used to set goals like having more patience. I don’t think that’s a good resolutions; it’s more a personal goal that I’ll struggle with all my life.


Dana Hentschel, Outreach Coordinator

I used to do resolutions, but always felt like a failure when old habits resurfaced in week 3. I now focus on progress, not perfection. Also, instead of annual resolutions, I have personal quarterly goals.


Cathy Danton, Receptionist

To complete three items on my bucket list: hang gliding, travel with my daughter, and focusing more energy on my creative being.
