In Japan, daruma dolls are commonly purchased around New Year’s at the local shrine. If you have a personal goal or business objective in mind, you buy a daruma and color in one eye. Then it sits in your office or home as reminder to keep going, work hard and never give up. When you achieve the goal, you have the added satisfaction of coloring in the other eye to give the daruma full sight or “enlightenment.” While typical New Year’s resolutions, are generally about quitting a bad habit or losing weight and are soon forgotten, the daruma hangs around to symbolize your practical and tangible goal. What’s our goal for 2016? Sorry, I can’t tell you now. Don’t want to jinx it. Stay tuned. All will be revealed in due time.
