Spring cleaning your professional life
by Philip F. Jacobus

I know conventional thinking is you start a new year out on the right foot but I found that after the holiday season, I spend a lot of time cleaning up a few outstanding issues from last year and making up for the work I did not get done over the holidays.
There is something about the first day of spring that makes you feel like the time is right to prepare for the rest of the year.
What sort of things do you want to accomplish in your professional or business life?
What are the most important projects you have been considering and how are you go about to completing them?
What important people did you forget to get in touch with over the last two months and what are your plans for helping people that are, in some way, less fortunate and could use your assistance?
Of all the things you have been considering, with the benefit of time, what are some projects you have decided are not worth doing after all?
I hate to harp on lists since I talk about it so much, but this is a great time to make a list of the important things that you need to do and then start polishing them off.
In addition to renewing old acquaintances, it is a great time to mend fences with anyone that you have not seen eye to eye with over the last few months. Take the high road and try to reach out to someone you had a disagreement with. You are much better off to have friends than enemies.
Remember, everyone is feeling better at this time of year and it is a great time to make new connections.
