It’s the new year and I’m trying to make a resolution around change. Do you have any recommendations as to how I could better myself?
You’re already perfect, Naked; it’s the world that’s rough around the edges. Here’s my resolutions for 2017; I hope they help!
1 – Be kind to those who still believe change is the exception and that one day everything will revert to “normal”.
2 – In the ongoing saga of work/life integration, I will simply remind people there are no silver bullets, only choices, and cheer everyone up by singing something from “Annie”.
3 – When the glass looks half empty, I will pour what we have into a smaller glass.
4 – I will not give into the urge to panic that my career should be at "x" point already.
5 – I will cut my food into smaller pieces and chew more slowly. This can also be called "chunking projects".
6 – I will strive for genius as per the words of Churchill "True genius resides in the capacity for the evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information."
Happy New Year!
