Get ready for a better year

In Uncategorized on January 3, 2011 at 6:05 pm

Vince Lombardi, the famous coach, is known for saying that “The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success.”

If we want to do well this year, we need to plan to work hard. If we want to do better in 2011, we need to plan to work even harder than we did in 2010.

But when the rules of the game change – which they always do – we need to recognize those changes early, adjust our game plans, and figure out how to make the new system work for us.

Conceptual thinking is the competency that will help us identify patterns, see connections, and target the changes we need to make earlier than people who think more conventionally. This year, commit to appreciating your ways of thinking that are different from the norm…or at least learning to truly value that competency in others.

If we are smart, we can expect to see more changes in 2011. Hopefully, the changes will also offer opportunity, and not simply opportunity for growth. Get ready!

Here’s to your success in 2011!
