New Year, Old Mistakes

AG Bio  Annette Grotz

As the new year approaches, my thoughts are fresh with ideas on how I am going to improve my work, my relationships and myself in 2015.

This is not unique nor will anything be gobsmackingly different. Except for maybe one thing, I am not going to carry my old habitual mistakes into the new year. They shall be tossed out with the empty champagne bottles.

It's all about habits and efficiency. No more old tools that prevent me from doing more, better, in less time. I''m buying a new computer - no more Windows Vista warnings! Time for a new cell phone so I no longer have to make additional calls as dropped calls close my conversations too early. Time to schedule in exercise and family fun as remedying these little time wasters will open up new opportunities for me.

I'm not alone in my desire to improve. Below, you'll find what a few other members of the SkyStem team are thinking.
