We’ve been doing The Talk for a couple of years now, and what I’m
really loving about the feedback lately is that on the topics to which
we cycle around to annually, we’re starting to paint a year-to-year
picture of the industry’s mood. So while there’s a lot going on right
now—not the least of which is the status of the health care reform
bills and the newly-implemented lead paint rules (see below)—I was taking a peek at our poll from the first week in January in
the past and I just couldn’t resist.
What’s your business’s New Year’s resolution? C’mon…fess up.
Two years ago,
more than 30 percent of participants aimed to just make it out of the
year alive and kicking. Last year wasn’t much better than 2008 so I
wouldn’t have expected 2009’s resolutions to be particularly cheery
But what about 2010? Some folks are feeling more upbeat,
so perhaps your company’s resolution is less about survival and more
about expansion? Please send me an email and
let me know what your business resolutions—or if you prefer the word
goals instead—are and how do you think you’ll fare in accomplishing
them? What is it that you’ve been meaning to tackle for some time, but
perhaps the economy threw a damp towel on your plans?
