It may be a little bit late, but nonetheless, I am announcing my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014.
- I will stop creating retaliatory traffic problems for my rival colleagues near my office by moving the big plant outside my door into the middle of the hallway.
- If it becomes necessary to create that bottleneck, I will not send an email to my assistant asking her to move the plant for me.
- I will stop waiting for the sky to fall every time there is a weak jobs report. I will convince myself that we will never have another recession as severe as the last.
- I will put a small amount of the money I buried in my garden back into the bank. At some point.
- I will take Twitter more seriously.
- I will submit at least one proposal response to an RFP in the language of Farsi, just to see if anyone notices.
- I will agree with everyone who tells me that LinkedIn is going to put us out of business.
- I will never say “I told you so” when they call in two months in need of immediate help on a search.
- I will stop explaining the business model of retained executive search to well-meaning people who do me the “favor” of sending me resumes of their unemployed friends and neighbors.
- I will submit my blog entries in a timely manner to She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed so I don’t have to resort to listing my New Year’s Resolutions next year.
Loving the new years resolutions of this executive search consultant! I like especially the post about reexplaining the business model of retained executive search. It seems to me that this man has a high level of EQ (soft skills).
