Happy New Year!
Embarking upon a brand new year is an exciting time for all businesses. But just how do you go about seeking the results you want in the long run? What key players will help you achieve the goals you are setting?
On December 31, these familiar lyrics were played at numerous New Year’s Eve celebrations:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne?
Isn’t it funny how it’s possible to sing and hear a song so many times . . . yet have absolutely no idea what it means?
Should we be forgetting old acquaintances? Out with the old, in with the new? Or is it a reminder to reach out to old friends we’ve neglected over the years?
Simply stated, “Auld Lang Syne” is about the endurance of friendship, about appreciating the past as we look to the future. A new year signifies many different things to people, both personally and professionally. It allows a clean slate while looking back at accomplishments. It represents new dreams, yet never fails to recall what led to present times.
As you anticipate 2016, and the hopes for prosperity in the months to come, take a moment to reflect on the year you’re leaving behind. What decisions brought you closer to your business goals? What personal connections helped bring fulfillment to your year? Does bidding farewell to the past leave you with regret . . . or with a sense of promise?
Here’s wishing you and yours good health and much happiness in the new year. And may you also find a few grateful moments to glance back as you eagerly look forward.
