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 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?
