Personally, I'm not big on New Year's Resolutions. If I want to make changes, why wait until Jan 1st to implement them? If it is worth doing, it is worth doing now.
That being said, I do like to use the 4th quarter of the old year to plan and schedule my major goals for the coming year. Having a plan gives me direction and a 'map' to follow as the year unfolds. Without it, I tend to find that goals get forgotten.
So in this, the first blog of 2013, I want to survey you folks a bit. Ask a couple of general question and see what you think.
Do you formally set goals for the upcoming year? If yes, what goals have you set for 2013?
Is education and professional development ever on your list? What are you planning to study this year? What might you want to learn if there was an opportunity?
Finally, what do you see for your business or industry in 2013? Are you anticipating a good year, a poor one, or about the same? Are you looking at expanding or changing your business this year?
Enquiring minds want to know! I'm not sure where all these questions will lead, but I think that it might engender some interesting discussions!
