New Year and Resolutions in the Kingdom

Once Upon a Time I Made a New Year Resolution…  I wrote all this great stuff in a planner, in a fitness planner and made a Vision Board.  Then I ignored all of it because I didn’t have time.  That describes 2014.  It was a great year by all accounts, but if I’m really honest, it was on accident.  Hard work, but not from the plans I created.  I was extremely busy, I was in my car A LOT, I became addicted to Starbucks and apparently allergic to exercise (I was busy & tired, ain’t nobody got time for that).

So why I am I telling you this? Because I started a blog and got to busy to write posts. They say to effectively get readers you have to be consistent, otherwise they get disappointed and leave.  I gave myself the excuse that you were busy too and wouldn’t notice.

I know you are all thinking this, so am I!

I know you are all thinking this, so am I!

I hope I was right, but then if I was, I just gave myself up!

Back to the resolutions…  I had some great growth last year.  Thank you to my clients for all of the exciting challenges.  But I did it all in a frenzy and THAT cannot happen again this year.  I have to get organized.  I must have a plan.  I can’t react to the challenges and run my schedule and myself around them.  I have to get back into shape (that’s personal so I won’t bore you with that one. But please if you see me near a cheeseburger slap it out of my hand!).

What am I doing to get there? Announcing it in Public… I will get organized, I will work the new systems I’ve put in place and re-evaluate in 90 days.  Trying KanBan as suggested from The Advenger.  Have to create a habit!  I’m also doing a 30 day blog challenge so I can get back into writing and keeping you up to date on all the EXCITING things happening in Human Resources.  I think the new Congress is going to keep us on our toes for a while and Illinois has a few new laws this year (a blog post to come I promise, it’s on the To Do List).

I hope to make this bigger and better in 2015.  I hope you can do the same with your business and life.

I would love to hear from you….

What are you doing to change it up this year?  AND  What topics are you interested in?

Once upon a time there was a boring HR person sitting in a back office filling out paperwork spouting sections from the handbook. I’m not that HR person. Work is a scary and sometimes funny place with lots of lessons to learn along the way. People don’t follow the rules, it’s HR’s job to steer them in the right direction. Unfortunately there are no apples with spells to make the bad employees fall asleep until we can recruit new ones. My Name is Denise Benages and I have been in the Human Resource field for over 16 years. I am president of HR Midwest, Inc. I plan on telling the epic lore of the workplace and help with solutions. Don't Bite the Apple...Work is not a fairy tale!

    It could be great if you share with us your strategy once you have gotten the planned results. In my case, I need to focus in a core activity avoiding all sort of distractions and having a project in place where I can control tasks, time, and evaluate results. Unfortunately, these days of dispersed attention do not contribute to keep the focus in the way I want but I do my best. My strategy is based in a personal knowledge management plan where I define short term and mid term activities and the knowledge I have to get. For instance, joining Blogging 101 will bring to me the specific knowledge to reinforce my next course in collective intelligence.
