Happy New Year!
It’s the 1st of January at midnight and you are celebrating the transition to the new year with your relatives. For most people, it is also the moment in which they commit to make new resolutions.
Make resolutions like an IT consultant
Most of the time, a resolution takes the form of divorcing with a bad habit (such as drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes) or marrying a good habit (such as going to the gym or eating healthy food). Only a handful of people actually follow through their resolutions: only 8% of people actually do them. But there is another way to commit yourself to improvement every year: make resolutions with an IT consultant mind!
Instead of making time-dependent resolutions, release a new VERSION of yourself.
Release a new version of you
Whenever an ERP software like SAP releases a new version, it comes with a new set of features and improvements to existing functionalities. Unlike new year resolutions made by people, for ERP softwares there is no coming back from the release of a new version.
Apply the same principle with your own life and your own business.
When you release a new version of you, understand that it is a permanent change, an improved identity, in other words a NEW YOU. If you ever come back to practicing one of your bad habits during the year, see it as a software bug because this isn’t part of the new version of you anymore. Fix the bug and embrace the new version of you in 2018.
Don’t hesitate to keep implementing improvements up to the moment in which you really become the best version of yourself.
Make 2018 your best year ever!
