Ole Years Nite
Happy New Year to you!
The holidays are officially over and we are blasting our way into 2010. Its going to get messy. The frustrations will become overwhelming at times. In some causes these will lead to success and other it will lead to disappointment. There will be moments of happiness that you might wish to last forever. Moments you will remember for as long as you will live. On the first working day of 2010 we stand very aware of all the potential it can bring to us. I know I am a bit late but I wanted to give you a Practical Wish for a Happy 2010. Its just hard when the fireworks are so loud!
New Year Resolutions Are A Great Tool
I know some of you might not believe in setting new year's resolutions. One of the big benefits with setting New Years Resolutions is that there is an automatic reminder system. There are too many things to remind you that is the turn of year and time to set new resolutions. There is also an abundance of inspiration lurking around in places you most expect and in places you least expect. It is a great tool I am telling you. I think the secret to it is keeping a good record of your resolutions you set each year. When you do that it give you the chance to see just what you have been able to accomplish in a year. Yes, Yes there will be some you have not made much progress on but I know you would have learnt something. There will be others on the list for 2 years running that you more than accomplished. You might just be amazed at how powerful these New Year Resolutions can be.
New Year Resolutions are supposed to last the entire year. Yes that means past March, June, September. Its like any other skill you get better over time.
That's the end of the post

P.S. Some of the questions that kept popping up over the season
What was my biggest lesson of 2009?
Learning how to take my ideas and make them real. Its a process I am still working on but I realized just how much of implementation we can leave up to chance.
What are you looking to do or implement for 2010?
Want to focus on my daily process. They are a few little things that we repeated each day will continuously take you to the next level. And a big part of that will be taking my ideas and potential and making it actual. I have been told I am good a networking, but I believe I still have a long way to go, so I am going to be working on that for sure. And yes, expect it to come with a little twist!
If you had to predict something to happen in 2010 what would it be?
I think we will see major development in online usage in the Caribbean. I think that by summer time Twitter is going to the things that will be massive in the Caribbean. I am hoping to see more Caribbean programmers developing cool programs for the Caribbean public to use. Sorry to say but they are kind of missing in action right now.
Media as we know it will significantly change. I think worldwide there will be major emphasis placed on freelancers/small business people there is a surprising amount of stuff out there now for people in this bracket but much if it is just getting started. I think we will see a huge leap in support services and so on for these people.
What would you like to see happen?
I would like to see some Transition Towns in the Caribbean. Well most of us watch Avatar, it would be great to co-exist with environment. I have always been interested in ecology and balance.
Any comments relating to business?
Hmm, At the end of last year it become apparent to me that the least productive meetings I had were the face to face ones. And that is not counting in cancellations and post poned meetings. I'm going to invest more time into making better use of the internet and phone for my business meetings. I am thinking we are living in a global village all connected by phone and the internet.
Happy New Year to you. Feel free to share your thoughts on the above.
