"Some people change when they see the light, others when they feel the heat...."   - Caroline Schroeder

Happy New Year!

The celebrations are over and it's reality time again.

2002 was a year of dramatic change and anxiety - corporate scandals, job loss, a lukewarm economy, homeland security concerns, military deployments and the threat of impending war. This is just the short list.

Of course there were good changes, too, and they should be weighed equally with the bad. All changes impact us and require flexibility and adjustment.

How have the above issues or others impacted you and your organization? More importantly, what changes do you need to make because of them? You may have already looked over your 401K, refinanced your house, reconsidered how valuable you are to your organization, or started repositioning yourself or your business. Whatever you need to do, do it.

Major adjustments may not be required but constant vigilance is important. Here are a few questions to get you thinking.

How will you build relationships with and serve customers/clients this year? (Remember that everyone is your customer.)

What do you need to do to enhance your marketability? (Do you need additional skills, a higher profile and better positioning in your organization or industry, or perhaps a new profession?)

What do you need to do to insure your financial security? (Contribute more to your 401K, budget better, downsize your lifestyle, spend more time reviewing finances.)

How will you gain more balance in your life? (Spend more time with your family and friends, take a class, get a hobby, eat better, read more books, take a relaxing vacation, slow down and enjoy the journey.)

It is much better to see the light before you feel the heat. Most of us have the knowledge and ability to make changes but self-doubt, fear, cynicism, laziness, arrogance, or bad habits can keep us from acting.

"Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worst to best...." - Richard Hooker

2003 is a New Year. Take control of your future. Make personal and/or professional changes to insure success and make it your best year ever.
