T’was the season when we left off before Christmas.
Still is. In fact every day is a gift day to yourself and to others.
My father used to tell me that “everyday was a test” when I was a schoolboy.
Indeed, every touch you have with clients, prospects, vendors, donors, hiring managers, teachers puts it on the line:
- Yea or nay.
- Call or ignore.
- Interview or pass over.
- Be offered a product or service attuned to your needs (only if you tell them what they are) or receive the standard treatment (and we all know how that has declined!)
- And of course with the casual reader of your LinkedIn profile, every word in every section puts you under the microscope.
Resolve for the new year to be “amazing-er” as I like to say.
So think of yourself as re-gifting to others, and to yourself by extension.
Only you can do it.
Happy new year. And make it a good one right from the outset. I know I am re-gifting myself continuously.
