As we turn the corner into 2009, we often reflect on what we would like to change or how we can make a positive impact. New Year's resolutions are rarely carried out in practice, mostly because we like to eat good food and jogging isn't exactly our cup of tea. There are, however, some resolutions we should all implement in 2009 – following through can empower us and fuel growth. Here are my top five resolutions for 2009: Resolution no. 1: I will try a new marketing medium. I will examine my niche segments and enter the realm of postcard/social media/billboard/(enter yours here) marketing. I will make this effort in earnest, properly test my advertising, track my results and pursue success through intelligent decisions. Resolution no. 2: I will delegate more tasks. I will convince myself that I do not have to handle every aspect of my business; I must only manage it. I will free time to focus on innovation and growth in 2009 by placing time-consuming tasks in the hands of competent and loyal staff members. Resolution no. 3: I will join a new business or networking group. I will focus on building relationships and helping others succeed, which will in turn bring success to me. I will listen to what others have to say more than I will speak, and I will be present and active in all group meetings. Resolution no. 4: I will weed out the old and learn something new. I will put aside my feelings and determine what is not working for me – and drop it. In its place, I will learn something new I can put to good use. Resolution no. 5: I will spend more time with my friends and family. These are the people who stand by me, inspire me, comfort me and the reason I do what I do. What do you resolve to do in 2009?
