Good morning.

I couldn’t help myself and here we are, the last MondayMotivator for 2008. At this time last year we were all on holiday and I wrote about the Lost Art of Dishwashing. This year still having no dishwasher has meant I have mastered Dishwashing to the point where I now have a black belt and I am looking forward to buying a dishwasher.

2008 has gone so fast that I am of the opinion time time is speeding up. Either that or there were only 300 days in the year. However the only way I know for sure there was 365 days is I kept a journal. This is something I have done over the years without great success and so a goal for 2008 was to write something everyday. Reading through it I was amazed at some of the things I wrote about and realised 2008 was a big year for the New Zealand and the world.

Change is happening and I would like to be part of it. So in 2009 my big goal is to work out how I can help New Zealand businesses create markets for themselves with better, faster, cheaper communication. We (the nation) have to start looking outwards and getting our expertise out to the world. The ideas and creativity that emanates from New Zealand is amazing. Have you heard about Augmented Reality? The guys from Hitlab at the University of Canterbury are leaders in their field.

Change is happening. I challenge you to start a journal for 2009. Just before you go to bed take a minute to write down your thoughts of the day. Doing this keeps your focus, clears your head (so you sleep better) and you will know exactly where the year went at this time in 2009.

Hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you a successful 2009.
