The big holidays are over, we’re well into the new year, the days are still short in the northern hemisphere, and we have been hit with some very challenging weather in the north. But life goes on as we travel down the path toward whatever dreams and goals you have set for yourself this year. Remember, if you don’t make plans for yourself someone else will make them for you! Someone said that to me when I was in my early 20s and it made an impact. I was just rolling along, playing with my horse, waitressing, and enjoying the freedom of living 3,000 miles from my home town. Back then, it was easy to live on waitress tips (even in California!), travel, and not really have a plan for the future.
I did this for a few years, when a friend asked me what my plans were for the future. I probably said something vague like, “I’m not sure…” That’s when he said, “You know, if you don’t make plans for yourself someone else will make them for you.” Oh. That shook me into action, I quit my go-nowhere waitress job and got a “real” job selling advertising for a local newspaper (hey, I thought I was in the major leagues with that job!). This one change started me on the road to my career in the computer industry, I made a conscious choice to take charge of my life, took action, and began the journey of living my dreams. What plans are you making for yourself in 2019?
