It’s hard to believe we’ll be celebrating the New Year in a few weeks. As I reflect on 2015, I can proudly say I accomplished a lot; both personally and professionally. I transitioned to a new career in human resources, started teaching as an adjunct professor and got more involved working with a nonprofit in my community.
Reflecting on my achievements helped me realize I measure success by how helpful I am to others.
If I facilitated someone’s growth, inspired commitment or helped someone in need, then I consider myself successful. Fortunately, I had hundreds of these moments this past year and thank my blog for many of these opportunities. Every week, I write a new article, giving dozens of people the encouragement and resources they need to develop their careers and prosper. It’s such a rewarding feeling.
Looking back on the year, these are my four favorite advice articles:
- Become an email hero using these etiquette tips
- 5 ways to resign with class—and keep your professional network
- 3 manageable steps that help battle stress and avoid burnout
- Why it pays to recognize your colleagues
These are important articles to me because they have assisted my friends, family and followers to be more productive, healthier and connected to those around them. I hope you will enjoy them just as much as I do.
Happy holidays and cheers to a happy and fruitful 2016.
