Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! May this year be your best year yet!

Now is the time when many people set resolutions—knowing that they aren’t likely to be kept. The idea of setting resolutions is almost a joke, so don’t do it. That’s right, skip the resolutions this year. Instead, set an intention.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary at m-w.com, the definition of INTENTION is: “a determination to act in a certain way.”

When you set an intention, you are determined to take action to bring it about. An intention is more motivating than a resolution is, and you are more likely to take it seriously. It requires commitment—determination—to realize it.

Fill in the blank: In 2012, I intend to                                                                                      .

Focus on an intention to improve your strengths in one area. For example, you could set an intention to take a workshop to improve your communication or leadership skills. Whatever your intention, take one action step every day to achieve it.

Try it, and see how much more you can accomplish by setting an intention!

Have a postively productive 2012!
