Firstly, let me wish you and your families a fun filled, professionally satisfying and most importantly healthy 2015. For me personally, 2014 was a year of great camaraderie professionally, an almost shocking relevation in terms of what is possible when one is under tremendous work pressure.
A lot of us make new year resolutions…In that tradition, my humble suggestion to you is to focus during this new year 2015 to pursue one passion or build one skill that you’ve always wanted to learn. It doesn’t really matter if it’s professionally relevant or not. To paraphrase the words of one of the greatest Industry disruptor and innovator of our times, the late Steve Jobs … “You can’t plan your life and career too much, It is not possible to connect all the dots that make a great career and a great life. It’s only when we look back that it all makes sense.” So have trust in your instincts , your destiny for life (if you believe in the concept) and follow it to the end.
Have a great new year 2015!
