Hello 2014. Time to say goodbye to the past and embrace the future. It’s a time that makes us think about what we could have done differently, what we’ve done right, and what we hope to do better. So, we’ve penned a few thoughts to get us started. We hope that you will enjoy reading them. And we hope to hear your take on things, so please feel free to comment and share with us your goals and wishes for the year ahead. We’re excited to read what you will write, and as always, we look forward to working with you. Have a great New Year!

It’s the beginning of a brand new year.

A time to look back and press forward.
A time when the past meets the future.
A time to ponder at what we have done, and what we can do.
A time for memories and dreams.

I hope all of you had a great celebration.
I hope you made time for laughter and dancing.
I hope you spent the night in the company of loved ones.
Or made new friends.

As we start 2014, I look back at the year behind us.
And I am thankful for the opportunities we’ve had.
Grateful to collaborate with wonderful clients, partners, friends.
I feel lucky, really.

Work is not hard when you enjoy it.
And we certainly do.
Especially when we work with people who are smart and kind.
Thoughtful and respectful.

Especially when we work on things that matter.
Like changing cultures. And creating meaningful experiences.
When we help companies find their real purpose.
And help them move their business forward. And make a difference.

For the year ahead of us, I wish for inspiration.
I hope we will push each other to grow and explore.
I would like to be proud of who I am and what I do.
And I hope the same for all of you.

After all, a year is nothing but time.
Seconds that build into minutes, then into hours that turn into days.
Weeks that become months, and seasons that change.
But in truth it is all just a series of moments.

So, let’s focus on each moment.
Each, a precious, fleeting opportunity.
A chance to do good.
A chance to be great.

I hope life will smile at you this year.
I hope the best for all of us.

I wish you amazing experiences, and great adventures.
I wish you happiness, fulfillment, inspiration, and success.
I wish you laughter, and art, and music.
I wish you friendship, and luck, and love.

I wish you many, many happy moments.

Let’s all have an amazing 2014.
