My Year-end Wishes for You

That 2021 was your best year ever

That you learned more than in any prior year

That you made the time during 2021 to enjoy the journey

That you offered a 5 to 1 ratio of praise to criticism with your team in 2021

That your family would say that you were in a better mood in 2021 than in prior years

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

That you and your spouse / significant other had a regular date night

That you added high quality people to your team and removed underperformers in 2021 (employees as well as clients and suppliers)

That you are proud of what your team accomplished in 2021

If you can’t agree with each of my wishes for you for 2021, please make sure that you approach 2022 in a way that will make all of these wishes be true for you

Mostly I wish for you a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season and prosperous 2022!
