Anti-Anti-Resolutions for 2016

by Jeffrey Mann  |  January 4, 2016  |  1 Comment

I have been writing anti-resolutions around this time for several years. They are “anti” in the sense that they describe things I would like other people to stop doing rather than what I intend to do. But not this year. This is an anti-anti-resolution post.

Because I came up blank.

Nothing new to moan and complain about this year.

Maybe I am getting mellower, less grumpy, or less creative. But I can’t come up with much that really bugs me right now. Some more snow would be nice, but I kind of like the mild weather. And railing about the weather is boring anyway.

I actually am feeling pretty positive, so can’t bring myself to focus on the negative. I’ve got some great topics to be exploring in 2016 around cloud office. The possibilities of the Internet of Things are exciting, as are the changes organizations are going through to become Digital Businesses. Watching and helping that happen is pretty fun. Rey is a wonderful character in the new Star Wars film, with lots of great possibilities for the rest of the series.

So…┬áIt’s all good; go about your business.


Oh. But please don’t hit Reply All with more than 10 recipients. That is still not cool.
