January is here, again. And you are too. Like most folks, you have probably made some promises of self-improvement to yourself. The most common one every year is to exercise more. Many crowd favorites are to quit smoking, get a better job, save money, take a trip, and recycle more. The list goes on forever. We even have a board here in the CEI dedicated to them!
What I have done, and as a result of this blog will recommend to you, is to segment your resolutions to make them more manageable and bite sized. So start with your life. Again, these include the above-mentioned resolutions. Then I broaden it to those around me, friends and family, co-workers, and classmates. Things like, “This year I resolve to make a donation the The Human Fund (http://festivusweb.com/festivus-the-human-fund.htm) for each of my co-worker’s birthdays”. But what about other aspects of your life? Hey – you’re a beautiful diamond with many facets, and each one deserves a chance to shine! Remember this is the UF Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation blog, so you can probably guess where this is headed.
How are you going to improve on your entrepreneurial skills this year? Read more books? Attend more live conferences? Network more? Network better? Is this the year you launch your app? Will you resolve to love Twitter? [www.twitter.com/ufcei plug] File your patent? Incorporate your business? Get acquired? Are you finally going to take the leap and quit your job and become the great entrepreneur you were meant to be?!
Tell us what your Entrepre-New-Year’s-Resolution is below. And if you don’t have one, or need help completing yours, we are here to help.
