The start of a New Year is always the right occasion to review accomplishments of the previous years and outline goals for the new year.
I am sure you accomplished a lot in 2013 and prepared your goals for 2014.
It is Labor Day weekend!
In honor of the holiday and in tribute to your contributions and achievements … Happy Labor Day!
It is that time of year ... the holiday season is upon us and we gather with family and friends.
One of my favorite movies to watch this time of year is the classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
This time of year it is easy to be gloomy and feel down in the dumps. The fun times of Summer and Fall are over; the days are getting colder, it is feeling more like winter, and there is less sunshine each day because there are few and fewer hours of daylight.
Add to this our feeling that it has been a tough year (circa 2012) with several natural disasters and a toxic presidential election season here in the U.S. it is easy to be grumpy, full of anxiety, and in a state of flux.
Many people feel badly this holiday season about what they can’t do for, or provide to, their families.
The big question is do they feel badly enough, that on December 26th before sunrise, they will be determinedly at work learning a new trade, developing a more valuable and marketable skill, seeking a better job, starting a business on the side, or otherwise striving to be sure that the next time the Santa season rolls around, they are better able to enjoy it and give their family a top experience?
