Happy New Year 2010: The Year Of You…

January 15, 2010

Happy New Year to All!!

It’s going to be another great year, again.

So, have you decided?  It’s part way through the month of January and hopefully you’ve decided what this is going to be The Year Of… for you.  Have you done this before?  No, then, read on.

I’ve started a tradition in asking people to write down what you are excited about, what your New Year’s Resolutions are going to be, or what you want to declare this “The Year Of…”.  Please feel free to add a comment below.

Declaring this to be “The Year Of…” something is a great way to give your year a focus.  Give it a try. 

If you are going to write down a resolution or two, consider writing the date the you are shooting to be complete by. 

And always feel free to send me an email.  info <at>

All the Very Best to You,


PS.  Don’t forget to check back next year to see how it went.  You’ll be surprised

  1. This will the year of…writing my book! I’ve co-authored 2. Now I’m writing my own. By Dec 31, 2010 it will be done…and likely much earlier.

    This is a cool idea Paul! I have veared away from annual goals and instead have focused on 1 BIG gem each month. Sometimes it’s a start doing (rock climbing last Fall) or stop doing (email in the morning) or shift (trusting I have enough time). 1 BIG gem each month. Works for me!

    I like it. That’s a great way to do it. Life is just a set of stories (or projects) and chuncking it up that way really is powerful.

    Take care, Paul

    For me this will be the year of laying foundations for a consulting practice as the next step beyond teaching English internationally. I heard a great speaker (Bob Dignen of York Associates in the UK) at ETAS in Biel last weekend, who challenged the audience to go further than teaching Business English, and start thinking about communication and cultural diversity in international team environments. York Associates did just this, and transformed their English teaching practice into a successful global consulting practice. Of course, many traditional teachers walked out on his talk … didn’t get it at all, or not interested. Kim and I hung on every word and are now planning our paradigm shift. By August 2010, I will be well read in matters of team development, communications theory and intercultural awareness. In September, I plan to get my accreditation at York Associates DPI workshops in Frankfurt. By the end of the year, we will complete our business plan. Boy, do we have A LOT of talking to do on SKYPE Paul! Feel free to make suggestions for my reading list!

    Sounds like a great exciting adventure ahead. Let’s set up a time to connect once I’m back in the office.
    Cheers, Paul
