2011 New Year’s Resolutions Part 1

I posted a larger piece on 2011 New Year’s Resolutions on our company blog.

Here is the first of the Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions for 2011.

#5 - Be a “Yes Man”

Being a “Yes Man” is based on the idea of the 2008 film Yes Man, starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel. In the movie, Carrey’s complacent and always predictable character is forced to change his boring and uneventful ways. When presented with an opportunity, he has to say “yes” no matter what it is. The result – a wild ride of comedy and a much more entertaining life filled with fun, love and excitement.

Face it, we all have the tendency to be “Boring Betty’s,” “Settled Sally’s” or “Pessimistic Peter’s.” It’s so much easier to say “no” when it could be so much more fun to simply say “yes.” So, this new year, when someone presents you with an opportunity, don’t resort back to firing the holstered “no” standby – take chances, say “yes!” Who knows, it might just change your life.

On a personal note I have met some great people who have been very helpful all because I said Yes to a simple request.  A special thanks to Larry Easto who falls into this category.

Happy New Year to you and stay tuned for the next 2011 New Year’s Resolution.

Josef, This is a great twist on being a "yes man". Are you coming to Baltimore soon and can we visit? Notice... I am only asking you questions this year which can be answered with a YES!
