TGIF – Here Comes The New Year

December 23, 2011 by Bill Bradley

As the week winds down, we wind down with some tidbits for your information, education, health, and enjoyment.

Quote of the Week: “You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” —George Lorimer

Humor Break: From our favorite married couple:

Bev:  “What are you going to do today?”
Al: “Nothing.”
Bev: “You did that yesterday.”
Al: “I’m not finished.”

Stat of the Week: As you plan for next year remember what Thomas Edison advised: Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

Action Tip: If next year you plan to work hard, take some time during this year end period and do the following: (1) reflect on where you have been and where you are going; (2) set some meaningful and measurable goals; (3) investigate/develop a time management process that will list AND prioritize your activities in both your professional and personal life; and, (4) make sure your lists include time for family and friends, your health, and your career and personal development.

Volunteering: Make time for others.  Invest of your self in a volunteer organization that reflects your values.  If you can’t find time to volunteer, take time to question your values.

Bill Bradley (mostly) retired after 35 years in organizational consulting, training and management development. During those years he worked internally with seven organizations and trained and consulted externally with more than 90 large and small businesses, government agencies, hospitals and schools.
