Back in early January 2008, I wrote this article about my New Year’s Resolution.  Well, I was young…

Are you making any good New Year’s resolutions this year?  Here’s mine, and you might like it, too:

“Whatever I do, I vow to be more efficient.  I’ll maximize the time I devote to whatever I do best.  And at any time I’ll always choose to do the most important thing on my list first.”

In other words, I’ll focus on the most effective and satisfying personal and business activities, and “weed out” the rest.  Seems to me life’s too short for keeping time-wasters, and the start of a new year is a great time to “clean house”.

Listen to that, I must be getting old.

I hope you’ve enjoyed wonderful holiday parties recently.  This week I’m working with some people who skipped last year’s holiday rush, to schedule their next event in January or later in the spring.

They mention several advantages to this plan, including links with holidays like Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and St. Patrick’s Day.  And it’ll be easier on the budget, too.

This is a decent strategy for early in the year, but what if your wedding or your next party will fall later in the year?  Guess what?  The sooner you start planning, the better.  It’s always a good time to begin arranging details, including music, for your next celebration.

And if you don’t mind being a little ruthless, you might like to share my resolution and choose to be more efficient.
