As I announced at the blogging close of 2007 with the post, Feeding that Inner Geek, today’s post is the final one for 2009. My sentiments expressed then, remain the same:
As much as I enjoy finding stories to share about Emerson’s experts in action, I also enjoy reaching that part of the year where it’s time to use up unused vacation, unplug from the day-to-day, and spend time with family and friends.
I encourage each of you who have upcoming holidays to consider doing the same. In today’s world where creativity and innovation are everything, finding time to unplug and think about things outside your day-to-day work is paramount in recharging your creative juices.
Deb Franke has been a driving force in our advances in social media over the past several years. Deb has a great post today, Beyond Fear: Hope for 2010. In getting past the “hunker-down” mode of 2009 and into a thriving mode in 2010, here are three hopes from her post for you to consider as we look forward to 2010:
My hope for 2010 is that we all wake up to our personal power. The visionary leader has arrived and it is you (and me). Let’s unleash our excellent minds to solve problems and share our strengths and talents with the world.
In 2010 let’s see how many problems we can solve from action. Let us all take the focus from our mouths and instead use our ears and hands. Our ears to listen to others and our hands to create solutions.
My hope for 2010 is that we each experience more times when we realize our own blessings and have the courage to ask others “What is it that you need?” Let each and every one of us experience the joy of providing the answer through service to another.
I hope you find that time to relax, refresh, and recharge so you can discover those creative ways to thrive in 2010.
