Getting Started in the New Year

Getting started in a new year sure does bring a lot of stress and expectations.

Is anyone else having trouble getting started in the New Year? i just can't seem to get my motor started.

You see, this is a big year for us. I am graduating with my Master's Degree in May. Because of this, I have put a great amount pressure on my self to accomplish big things this year. The biggest weight on my shoulders ... what the heck do I want to be when I grow up?

Having already completed one successful career in marketing, I know what I can accomplish. But the second time around is tremendously more scary, because I know what I can accomplish! You see, anything less will be a failure....at least that is what my competitive inner-ego is saying. My brain knows that I have moved into a completely different area of my life and need to give myself some slack.

So what will it be? Writer, marketer, social media consultant, university administrator, restaurateur, entrepreneur? Eeek! All I can say for sure is that something is going to happen this year. No pressure....
