Well, it’s 2010, a New Year! We have put 2009 behind us, and as we are prone to do, forget the lessons we learned or things we discovered.
Before rushing into the New Year, take time this weekend to reflect. Do a couple of things to inspire yourself:
Read Seth Godin’s eBook: What Matters Now. It’s a great collection of short articles on all sorts of different perspectives. It’s great food for thought as you think about what you want to achieve for the new year.
Then take the time to think about how you can Make A Difference. My friend, Rebel Brown, has an interesting idea: Think Small. Think about how you can make a difference in a person’s life every day this year. As Rebel puts it, think small. Sometimes the difference you make is nothing more than a smile, or a thoughtful note. It may be taking the time to listen. Imagine what each of us can accomplish–365 small acts of Making A Difference.
Think what could happen, it can snowball. Imagine, each person reading this post doing 365 acts of Making a Difference—we’re now into 100’s of thousands. Then those people that we’ve impacted will start doing the same thing. Who says change is tough? All it takes is one small act every day.
