How was your Christmas? Good New Year? I think I have a THOUSAND emails! I’ve almost forgotten how to do my job? Any New Years Resolutions? I *hate* January!
You can play bingo with the usual small talk about the beginning of the year, but now it’s time to move past that part of the script.
So, make today the last day for your Christmas and New Year small talk and get into the mindset to smash 2017.
For levelling up? It’s your choice.
You can upgrade skills, shift role, move company or change career – but if you don’t take the first step, you won’t make the next step.
In the competitive business world, standing still is not really an option. We all need to grow our skills, get educated and learn new competencies before the next person does and drinks your milkshake.
There are plenty of opportunities out there, but no-one will lead you to them. YOU will need to take the next step. This isn’t about New Year resolutions or buying a self-help book to leave on the reading pile to gather dust, this is about choosing and executing an investment in yourself.
So, is this your year?
Time to make it happen.
Advent, Christmas, Twixmas, New Year, Hangover, Resolutions.
It’s all done now, finished for another year. Depending on where you are, today is a last free day before heading back to work after a break, or at least some quiet time.
So today is a time to be ready, pencil sharpened, tools ready, inbox organised and notebook fresh for another year of success.
Let’s BLAST into 2017.
Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a successful, peaceful and prosperous year.
