Another year has passed and a new year has begun, a time when we reflect on the past and decide what changes we want to make for our future. We make a commitment to a personal goal, or a New Year’s resolution. Common resolutions are things like lose weight, quit smoking, save money, get organized, or learn something new.
I’ll admit up until a few years ago, I was not one of those people that made New Year’s resolutions. I always thought they were silly because most people failed at achieving those goals. I’m really not sure what made me change my mind, but in 2007 I set my first New Year’s resolution and stuck to it. My resolution was to quit smoking and I’m happy to report that I haven’t touched a cigarette in 4 years! I’ve made resolutions every year since then and can say that I have achieved them all.
The keys to setting your resolution, just like setting any goal, are to a) be realistic and b) have a plan on how to achieve them.
Similar to individuals, companies set resolutions or goals at the beginning of their fiscal year. Your organization probably has goals such as achieving a specific revenue number, launching a new product, or providing excellent customer service. In 2011, the policyIQ has a number of goals for our team, our business and our customers, and we’re happy to share some of those “New Year’s Resolutions”.

Wondering what my personal resolution is this year? I will admit that I am a bit of a picky eater and stubborn at times, so this year I have decided to be more open to trying new things. It’s only January 6th and I’ve already tried something new – shrimp! That’s right, shrimp. I’m the girl who doesn’t eat any seafood and I ate a piece of shrimp!
