The end of the year often is a time to look back at what we’ve accomplished and a time to evaluate what’s next in line for the New Year. While we might be happy and fulfilled in our careers and truly love what we do, we continue to constantly seek advice to further grow in our professional lives.
My resolutions for 2016:
- Seize the opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing to, to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create.
- Do my best work followed by best work followed by more best work – this is far more useful and generous than merely doing our best work once and insisting we are understood.
- Play for the long haul. Take the more difficult route. Surround myself with people who insist I avoid the shortcut.
- Write to make a difference.
- Be more flexible in my thoughts – change, actual change, is hard work. And changing our own minds is the most difficult place to start.
- Keep in mind that everything I do is either going to raise my average or lower it.
