Action, Interaction and Reaction from the Ritz team

Unresolved

Posted: January 10, 2013 - 2:00 PM ET - by Elisabeth

My team demonstrates their commitment all year long, and they’re establishing and exceeding goals for our clients on a regular basis. (I don’t mean to brag, but I have immense respect for what they get done.) As we kick off 2013, I thought it would be fun to hear from some of the team what they’re resolving to do personally and professionally. It turns out, for many of us, our commitment is really a day-to-day effort, and as for formal resolutions, we are … unresolved.

Mike Beyer

“My resolution is to be much more organized in my work and do a better job of reading newspapers/ following media influencers. I also resolve to get a better handle on social media for 2013.”

Patty Keiler

“My first-graders recently began reading ‘chapter books” and watching them get lost in a book (most recently Ramona the Pest!) has been a beautiful reminder of how much fun – and how therapeutic – it can and should be! I’m almost through with Gone Girl and love it (shhh if you know the ending).” 

Kiera Kelly

“Go to bed earlier. Be more organized. Ensure I am ‘present’ as much as possible with my kids instead of worrying so much about the tasks at hand.”

Jennifer Newman

“My approach is more to try to make adjustments and improve myself all year long!”

Phil Sheldon

“… in general, I am not a supporter/believer in the process of setting New Year’s Resolutions. I tend to make new resolutions regularly throughout the year when I need to tweak my behavior, resolve, direction, etc., but this year I did make a couple timed with the holiday. First, I resolved to breathe a bit more and take time to THINK – let the creative juices flow more regularly in work and at play which we DO NOT do often enough.  Second, I resolved to try to make a difference a bit more often, whether it is in work, with family or in the grander scale of things – deliver a bit of impact now and then.”

Molly Watson

“No resolutions. I am a work in progress.”

Heather Wiederhorn

“I resolve to try and stick to a mantra that has been in our family for years: “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” It doesn’t necessarily mean that changes are in order – even though they likely are – but focuses on the here, now and tomorrow all wrapped up in one. I like to think of that saying when sweating the small stuff – which I hope happens less often this year.”

… and as for me

I’m no different, I follow Anaïs Nin’s example: “I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me. ”

Wishing my team, and all of our readers, the resolve to achieve whatever you are hoping for this year!
