Take ordinary New Year’s resolutions and apply them to a business context. That is what F. John Reh does in an article at About Management. For instance, if you want to “lose weight” at work, slimming down your workload to what really matters, then focus on better time management and better work/life balance. If you want to improve your finances, the big thing to do is to quantify it. Reh gives the example, “Are your energy costs too high? Resolve to reduce electrical energy costs in Q1… by 5% by changing all office lighting from incandescent bulbs to LEDs.” And finally, if you want to “get organized,” take some time to clean out your desk and your inbox, as well as manage and assess your various work relationships. Good ideas have a habit of being applicable across disciplines.
