My New Year’s Wishes for You

That 2019 will be your best year ever

That you will learn more than in any prior year

That you will make the time during 2019 to enjoy the journey

That you will offer a 5 to 1 ratio of praise to criticism with you team in 2019

That your family will say that you were in a better mood in 2019 than in prior years

That you will take the fabulous vacation that you have been looking forward to for so long

That you and your spouse or significant other will have regularly scheduled date nights

That you will add high quality people to your team and remove underperformers in 2019 (employees as well as clients and suppliers)

That you are proud of what your team will accomplish in 2019

Mostly I wish for you a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season and prosperous 2019![themecolor]
