Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It’s time to once again reflect on the year that has passed and look forward to 2013. According to a study from the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology, over 60% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions at least occasionally. As a habitual resolution maker, I was curious how many of my fellow team members also had this habit. In an informal survey of netlogx team members, I asked them to complete the sentence “My New Year’s Resolution is…” Their responses showed that our team members have some fairly lofty goals for 2013.

“My New Year’s Resolution is:”

  • Finish 1 knitting project a quarter and balance!
  • Lose 40 lbs and run (use term loosely!) half marathon
  • To challenge myself in 2013
  • To get in shape personally, financially, and in the workplace
  • Lose 30 lbs
  • To save, save, save in 2013! (netlogx 401k and rollover previous 401k)
  • To challenge myself personally and professionally, to continue to learn new things and to take on new activities!
  • To become stronger – physically, mentally, and spiritually
  • Not missing a day to love, laugh, and enjoy the many blessings
  • Get fit and save money for a down payment
  • To enjoy my work, whatever it is; and make sure netlogx is well represented and my best effort is put forth
  • Reconnect with someone each month that I rarely talk to by giving them a phone call
  • Running a half marathon
  • Start a family!
  • To become a pirate

Unfortunately, New Year’s Resolutions are notorious for being broken. Although many people make resolutions each year, the study shows that only 8% of Americans typically succeed in achieving their goal. Even the most highly motivated person today, early in the New Year, can lose momentum as a dreary February slides into March.

However, when I look at our team members, I’m not buying the 8% statistic. Such a tremendously talented, motivated group can’t help but succeed. Together, I know we can support each other to reach our goals. May all of us be successful in our efforts to better ourselves and our communities!
