It’s 2017… it feels good to say that.
Not because 2016 sucked or was an awful year. 2016 was a year of business and personal confirmation. I don’t know that I learned a lot of new things… but I validated/affirmed what I thought was true. What I thought I was good at I am freaking good at it. What I thought I suck at I really suck at. And the people I have around me, are the best. I’m a lucky guy.
Knowing all that, for me, is HUGE.
I have been looking forward to 2017 and taking a number of big steps this year. That includes the next item…
New Year’s Resolutions
I don’t do them. I never have. Nothing wrong with them but I think any day you wake up you can make a change. So why wait 365 days to do them.
“The reality is the end of year and beginning of a year isn’t an end and a beginning. We made that shit up, a long time ago.”
While I don’t do resolutions… I do a theme. It’s in my email signature and constantly on my mind. For 2017 it is:
Do It Now
3 not so simple words.
I think about all the things I have been wanting to do and I know this… I can trust me. I trust that my compass is true and my intentions are good. I need to “do the things”. Yeah I am going to have some mistakes but nothing critical. Just things that will require a course correction.
This is going to be good year and I am going to spend much less time thinking about things and doing them instead.
Minnesota Recruiter Jobs
This morning I posted a few new Minnesota Recruiter Jobs with a total of 33. As best I can remember this is the most I have had posted at this time of the year since I started doing them almost 10 years ago. It’s a good sign of how the economy is doing… it’s simple, when companies are hiring recruiters they are going to be hiring. When they let recruiters go a slowdown or recession is not far behind.
Minnesota Jobs Scene
New Year’s Day I was in the WCCO AM (CBS) studio for a 25 minute chat with Roshini Rajkumar about the Minnesota jobs scene. We took a couple of calls answered some texts. If you go to WCCO's News and Views with Roshini Rajkumar look for 1-1-17 and 12 pm and forward to 23:23 you can hear the conversation. Find Roshini on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn
