Happy New Year Fellow SPies! I hope you had a relaxing and rejuvenating winter break. As much as I love time off with family, I always miss the schedule and routine of working. Winter break is also a nice reminder that I like the people I work with and miss seeing them!
I’m going to be honest, I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions in my personal life. In my opinion, if someone wanted to lose weight/exercise more/volunteer more/drink less pop, etc. it’s not going to happen because the year started over, it’s going to happen because he or she is diligent and mindful, sets smart goals, and monitors them frequently. I decided instead to set some professional resolutions for 2017. I shouldn’t even call them resolutions… they’re really more “intentions” for a more positive professional life.
