RIDE THE ROCKET (0:31)
Back in the day when I was a hotshot CEO, January staff meetings were always a blast. My partner and I would stage electrifying (PowerPoint) presentations designed to enlighten and inspire our staff to start the New Year with an explosion of brash, cocky confidence. It was a chance to gather everyone together and sell our ideas about where we’re headed, grapple with ways to get there, and get pumped about the coming adventures that would ultimately lead us to the Promise Land. Did it work? Sometimes yes, other times not so much. Does it matter? Yes.

| New Year? |
A good friend of mine only celebrates New Year's Eve/Day "superficially". Instead, he considers his birthday as his own personal New Year. He celebrates the fact that he has completed another year on this Earth, and now it is time to begin a new one -- as fabulously (and/or meaningfully) as he wants. It is a blank page and a clean slate, and truly the first day of another year and the rest of his life. Hmmm...interesting perspective on the New Year theme.

I'm filled with it too. Any chance to “start over,” to make a declaration of the future is very exhilarating! Why not?

I can’t fucking believe this! I read this this morning just after I walked out of a fully-charged staff meeting with 23 other hungry artist agents. You’re timing is impeccable and your words are always inspiring. I am filled with anxious impatience!

There is expectation, an audible drumroll that begins each year. But how do I keep the energy going throughout the year? I heard on the news last nite that a poll showed that 70% of peeps had already broken their resolutions. I know in a previous blog, you had advised “baby steps and promises,” so I am putting those into my reality for 2014.
