It’s 2020. And I’ve decided to take advice from a cowboy.

In the movie, City Slickers, Curly (played by Jack Palance) gave city dweller, Mitch Robbins (played by Billy Crystal) this advice:

Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger]
Curly: This.
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean shit.
Mitch: But, what is the “one thing?”
Curly: [smiles] That’s what you have to find out.

So, what’s your “one thing” this year?
