It’s difficult to make myself believe that 2011 is here already. Didn’t 2010 just start a couple of weeks ago? Where the hell has the time gone so quickly? It almost feels as though each and every year goes by faster than the one before. I’m not getting old, so that cannot be the reasoning. In any case – for better or for worse – it’s now 2011.
This year is going to be a better one. I don’t believe in making resolutions on New Year’s Day. I feel it’s more important to make changes in your life as soon as you know they need to occur. Don’t wait for a specific day to start living better. It’s better to evolve yourself year-round. By making a resolution, you’re putting WAY too much pressure on yourself and the chances of failure are much higher. Additionally, some people set unrealistic goals for themselves, making things more difficult and convoluted.
I have hopes and wishes for the coming twelve months, of course. Many of them involve all of you. We plan to continue building the community and giving you the tools and resources you need to go out and make a difference in your world. We hope that by connecting you to each other, collaborations between people who may otherwise have never met will happen. I’ve seen some pretty amazing things begin thanks to the meeting of minds that can occur within a community, and ours is no exception.
I’d like to thank each of you for contributing to the community – and to my life – every day of the year. Doing the things we do isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it when we see the interaction between you, and the bonds that are created… both personal and professional.
Happy 2011 everyone!
