We often look at January first as unique. We give that singular point in time a special significance, but why? Has the first of January done anything to warrant our nearly religious reverence? Nope, not that I can see anyway. So let’s stop thinking of it as the only fresh start of the year, because in reality, we can make a clean break and start doing something new at any time. Every day can be a fresh start if you want it to be.

So starting today, right now as you read this sentence, make a commitment to actively chose which direction you want your career to go. Do you want to go the safe route, or is the road to risk and adventure more your style? Whichever road you chose, I am here to help.
