Happy 2013!

Did you make your New Year’s Resolutions? Have you already broken them? I think that happens to us all, we dash into the new year wide eyed with excitement and verve and then we inevitably hit a wall. With that in mind, it’s ok to start over again. Failure only makes you stronger, yes? Here are three ideas to help you be better in the New Year:

1. Learn Something New

Sounds easy doesn’t it? I have always been a proponent of education. Having the opportunity to expand my knowledge by learning a new skill or even a random tidbit of information excites me. Here are some ideas:

2. Take a Risk

A lot of people are afraid of the unknown. Many of us are afraid to fail, but failing helps us learn. In 2013, take a risk. Try something new. Step outside of your comfort zone.

  • Start a Business
  • Tell Someone How You Really Feel
  • Skydive
  • Bungee Jump
  • Ask Someone You’re Interested in Out
  • Move Somewhere New
  • Quit Your Job (If you feel comfortable doing so)
  • Travel Somewhere foreign
  • Try a New Cuisine

3. Try

The hardest thing about wanting to do something is not doing anything at all. You talk about it. You dream about it. But you have to make an attempt. You have to TRY. You may fail in the process, but you’ll never learn without taking the risk and jumping feet first into something. By trying, you’re having a new experience. You’re learning.

These are a few suggestions to help you get your 2013 into gear. I wish you best wishes and great luck in the new year.
