Well, it's the time of year that you find blog posts populating the sphere about the new year and the reflections that come with the passing of old friends. Usually, I flow against the current, but I find myself waxing nostalgic and wanting to recognize my efforts this year, put forth my goals for next year, and find out what yours are.
This year, I started two businesses and watched one of them flop while the other is blossoming in its own slow growing way. I made decisions about what I want from my newly found career and I'm taking steps to make them happen. I started three books. And I survived my oldest baby going off to kindergarten...(I didn't think that was possible, but I managed it).
For all of you, I appreciate your support in your reading and commenting on this quiet little blog--more than you know. While I am probably number 155.9999999 millionth in the sphere of 156 million blogs, I am sooo happy to be here. And when I see a new subscriber or someone RT my musings on Twitter, that little bit of fuel goes a long way. And I thank you:)
Next year, I plan on burning the whole building down.
My goals for the end of this year is to finish one eBook for this site on...drum roll, please...the effects of health on productivity:) And I am setting a blogging schedule and my cornerstone content for next year. Twice a week, I will post information to help keep you moving toward your productivity goals by staying healthy and fit in a world moving at the speed of information. I also hope to get into posting a Friday Flash each week. (Totally off-topic, but I love to do it).
This blog has evolved since I started in April from chaos to order and now into Health and Productivity. I feel at home in this space now. And I'm excited to be able to help others and do something I know and love.
My goal is to focus on fitness and whole nutrition for maximum quality from the Productive Creative that you are.
In addition, Mr. Seth Godin has inspired me to prune the following. So this year, I'll follow those whose tribes speak to me and I hope to attract an audience who would like to be part of my tribe. Noise is no good if you are not being heard. And while Twitter is about the numbers, if your numbers are not responding to your messages, then they're getting nothing from you. And vice versa. Advertising is no longer an option...this world's market is about PR. And I want to help you be the best at what you do...no matter what THAT is.
So come on 2012!! We're ready to get on the road!
What are your goals, career and otherwise?? What would you like to see from me that will help you? move forward?
