Unlike a lot of people I don’t usually make a list of New Year’s resolutions because I tend to act on resolutions right away, all year long, instead of waiting for the beginning of a new year. The same way I can start a diet on a Wednesday instead of waiting for Monday…
But a lot of people like to use this opportunity to reflect and set new goals and I think that’s a very positive way to start the year. This year in particular, there is one thing I think we should all add to the top of our lists: to become the best at what we do. Whether you improve your computer skills, or a certain process, whether you work on your communication abilities or specific skills you need for your particular job, you have to make it a priority.
In a tight job market, those who offer the best value are the ones who will find and keep jobs. And I’m talking all kinds of jobs. Check these examples of people who will soon lose their jobs if they don’t get their act together:
I’m sure you have your own examples. Hopefully they refer to others and not to yourself! Just in case, let’s all make this the number one priority for this year: stretch the limits of how good we think we can be and challenge ourselves to the next level.
