Well, that went fast, didn’t it!? Anna Quindlen once said, “For the young the days go fast and the years go slow; for the old the days go slow and the years go fast.” It honestly feels that way more and more lately.
In my last blog, I highlighted some great learnings from Inbound, things we have implemented over the past few months, as well as some items we are rolling out soon. The New Year always brings a fresh start, and I don’t mean rejoining the gym you never visited! This fresh start allows each of us to look back at the previous year and assess what we did well, and what we did not (career and personal). A New Year brings a brand new YOU as well. How will you take advantage of that opportunity and fresh start?
For me, I finally turned 40, so that was fun. I was able to say that in 2023, even after nearly 25-years of living in this great industry, I was still able to learn new things. The sharing of knowledge is always important, but what is equally important is pursuing self-education to then allow more knowledge to be shared along the way. So, in the new year, the new me will continue to grow in every way possible. The new me will ensure that I listen, learn, teach, and lead as best I can.
At Relish, our team added some amazing and talented folks to the roster in 2023. With great opportunities via our clients, come new team members. Our new team is well-balanced, diverse, and truly complements each other. As a team, we will continue to learn about each other, but also reevaluate our processes, to guarantee they work with the folks using them. A strong foundation, with good structure, allows us to adjust SOPs, procedures, workflows, etc…, as needed. With growth comes change, and you know that the response is NEVER, “We’ve always done it this way.”
As I have said each New Year, I look forward to what the new year will bring us and I am thankful for what the previous year has done for us!
Don’t forget to take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the moment you are in RIGHT NOW! Focus on your future (and all its successes) but remember that today only happens once…
