My favorite holiday is New Year's Day -- so full of fresh starts, new ideas, and new opportunities. I always set aside time for reflection and planning in December, looking at both business and personal goals. I find this activity worthwhile because it gives me clarity about which directions to pursue and which activities to begin in January.
Perhaps you are also thinking about your personal and business goals for the new year, maybe even a major change in life direction. If so, I recommend the book Practical Dreamer's Handbook from Paul and Sarah Edwards.
But more likely, you're spending December deep in planning for upcoming marcom and PR projects. In this case, a terrific resource for the new year is my book Copywriting That Sells High Tech.Whether you're a corporate employee, an agency writer, or a freelancer, you'll find it a highly practical and relevant source of ideas and inspiration for your marketing and PR materials.
Whatever your plans for the new year, I hope it brings you great success and happiness.
In the long run, we only hit what we aim at. Henry David Thoreau
