I always like the "almost live" casts by Mrs. Palatnik because she imparts the push. I have been studying and doing my best to make amends because I fear and love G-d. It is always nice, though, to get another reminder to try harder. Rosh Ha Shana is always more than about the sweetness of apples dipped in honey... the sweetness to be wrapped in the arms of G-d is even better. Thanks Lori, again.

Don't Wait Till the Holiday.
Correct your mistakes as you make them. Cause if you don't fix it immediately, the new year will be filled doing the same old things and waiting a year to repair it. Then you already have a light good feeling before the holiday.

making it good
Of course you are right about this time of year, in particular. Maybe in a way, it's the LAST opportunity to clear the decks, because surely, every day of our lives we should be doing this, namely evaluating and going over our responses to each other and finding opportunities to "make good". In that way, we make every day, holy.

making our mistakes right
Since I do usually regret the mistakes I make, thereby fearing G-d, yesterday I found $20 at work that someone may've dropped, spent it on my way home, but was still worried that someone may come around asking for it. So, to attempt to make this kind of mistake right, I donated more than $20 of tzedekah to a Jewish and secular organization to feed the hungry in Israel and elsewhere.
