Make a Plan, Not Just an Empty Resolution

 

Author Sarah Beckman

I used to be a resolution gal. Ahem. Let me clarify: I was an empty resolution gal. I would vow, “This is the year I will do such and such!” And as you can guess, inevitably I wouldn’t do it because I never made a plan to achieve all those lofty dreams and/or resolutions.

Did you know that one of the best ways to follow through on something is to write it down? In fact, 42% of people are more likely to achieve their goals if they simply take a minute to write them down. Of course, anyone who’s worth their weight would say, another surefire way to make a resolution a reality is to create an action plan to achieve it.

Why Your Most Important Corporate Competency has NOTHING to do with Your Product or Service

Death_to_stock_communicate_hands_3Author: Curtis O. Fletcher 

We live in an era of rapid innovation and rampant information. Whether we’re talking about a multi-billion dollar corporation or a mail order t-shirt company ALL of these organization started from the same place: an idea.

So then it would stand to reason that I am about to contend that your most important corporate competency has something to do with creativity, right? The ability to innovate and out-think the competition, be agile, be nimble in the market? While I am a HUGE fan of all those skills there is one competency that trumps them all: the ability to communicate.
