Let 2018 be the End of "New Year, New Me"

Here’s my deep thought for the first week of 2018. The new year inspires us to change, be better, do more, etc. in part because we make the space for self-reflection in the days or day leading up to the holiday.

What if we didn’t wait for a “New Year” to hit the reset button?

What if we set and evaluated our goals throughout the year?

What if we made small and big changes as needed instead of putting them off for a symbolic “restart”?

What if kicked it into high gear in March, June, or October and decided it was time to achieve our heart’s desire when the notion first occurred to us?

Make changing, resetting, or starting when you need and want to your 2018 resolution.

Don't forget to work for yourself this holiday season

Looking for a JobWe have made it through Thanksgiving and are only a few weeks out from another holiday season. My thoughts are permeated by holiday preparation but I can not let my career goals fall by the weigh side. Don’t decide that you will start again in the new year.

These “7 LinkedIn Job Hunting Tactic that Work” are a fairly easy lift. Use your online time for good, not evil (or at least for frivolity all of the time) and do something for yourself this holiday season.
