Share Your Resolutions

champagne towerOne of the greatest things about the Solo PR community is the support and inspiration we share here. On a recent #solopr Twitter chat, some suggested that we share our New Year’s resolutions here on the blog – fun, serious, and everything in-between.

As we countdown to next year, what are your goals and resolutions? Let’s learn from, inspire, and help each other make 2011 the most successful year yet! I’ve got a good feeling we’ll do just that.

Cheers!

  • 2011 WILL be the year I get more organized, automate more PR processes, do more networking and lose 15 lbs:)

  • Ah yes, the annual weight loss goal (don't get me started!). 🙂 Great list!

  • Kristie Aylett

    My D-I-Y mentality has gotten out of control so 2011 will be the year when I learn to ask for help BEFORE life gets out of balance.

  • Excellent goal — I'm doing the same. Delegation is the key to growth, so let's keep each other honest on this one!

  • Do better with investments (like actually have some) and retirement planning (so I'm not doing this PR thing when I'm 75)

    My resolutions:

    1. I'm already in Weight Watchers. This year I plan to max it out and get to my weight goal.
    2. To treat my pen name like a client. It's time I begin promoting my book that releases this summer.
    3. On another note, it's time that I complete my Book Events Planning Book.
    4. Treat DeeGospel PR like a client, as well. I undersell myself too much.
    5. Be more active with SoloPR. I love you guys!!

  • Such a great point. No one makes us save for retirement, so we have to take the initiative ourselves. Good luck!

  • Love it!

  • A few quick resolutions for 2011:

    Professional:
    * Develop an internship program for my business—hired my first intern this week!
    * Develop more process in my business (and, as a result, more efficiency)

    Personal:
    * Cut out soda from my diet completely
    * Work out 3 times a week by EOY
    * Turn off the computer/iPad completely from 6-9 p.m. every night

  • I told a good friend recently that I only had ONE resolution for 2011:

    To reach out and reconnect with some people who played an important part in my life (in the past), but with whom I've lost touch with over the last few years.

  • These are terrific goals…except for the one about the soda. That's just kooky talk! 🙂

  • What a cool resolution, Judy. I'm sure you'll reap the rewards.

  • Kate

    Business resolutions – increase my “social capital” and make more personal connections. I'm going to start by refreshing my LinkedIn profile, and my business FB profile, and then try attending meetup's in my city. And of course, get organized 🙂

    Personal resolution – run two 5K races this year, and hopefully work up to a 10K by the end of the year!

  • Good ones Arik, but if I were a bettin' woman I'd say that computer/iPad (or smartphone) one is a zinger. Either you'll cheat a night here or there or as a result of your forced Internet hibernation, you'll be staying up even later every night. 😉

  • I have a lot of them, so I'll shamelessly promote my blog post here. http://bit.ly/g0geb0

    Summary of the business goals:
    • Better tweeting via more conversations, chats.
    • More productive blogging aimed at expanding my network, reaching more potential clients.
    • Organizing my business practices, cleaning up my website and office, and making real connections in addition to social ones.

    Personal goals: Exercise on occasion, and for you I'll even try to eat something healthy sometime. FWIW.

  • Good for you, Kate. Many of us find that networking is not only good for our business, but it also makes things more fun!

    My biggest flaw – procrastination. I am the Queen and I would like nothing more than to relinquish the crown. Have been this way too long and 2011 is the year to change it.

    Anyone have any good tips that will help me kill this bugaboo of mine once and for all? Much appreciated!

  • There's always room for improvement on that one!

  • In my younger days, I had this affliction as well. I now focus on the nasty feeling of having something hanging over my head, and I find that's a great motivator. Best of luck!

  • I didn't want to weigh in too soon with my own resolutions, but one of my main goals is to offer more around Solo PR in 2011. I find helping my fellow indies to be tremendously rewarding, and I feel blessed to have made so many new friends through this community.

    Here's to the new year!
