Now that we are all reseted from 2009, and experienced the first decade of the new century.
It was a tumultuous time for a multitudes of reason, and events. With the publishing facility that anyone can access, there are hard drives filled with a variety of opinions on whatever subject is of interest to you. Its as simple as using your favorite search application to find the information you are seeking.
Lets fast forward to today, and more important tomorrow:
- Now that we are all reseted, did we learn to do more with less?
- Will 2010 be the year that we do more with less?
- We compress time, and distances its fascinating. Will we enhance our understanding?
- If we are all reseted, and our respective governments spent billions of our tax dollars to avert a global calamity. Will we stop talking about getting out of some form of economic downturn.
- In 2009 we threw money at the problem, in 2010 we have to start finding the money.
- Is it possible that in 2010 we are all part of "the media", we make our media.
- Will 2010 bring some "stability" to the automotive industry? We don't think so.
- How many folks "re branded/ re invented" themselves in 2009? What will they do in 2010 and beyond?
- Will it a be a brave new world in 2010 or more of the same old?
As we enter the new year, and decade keep in mind:
Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.
We are sure that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.
During last few days of the year, we tend to get introspective, look back and then look ahead, its part of human nature. Its a process of winding down one year, and one decade, and winding up for a new year, and decade.
Think about this, the last time we were winding up for a new decade, was also a new century. A bit of perspective!
We do hope that you have taken or will at least take a few moments to be thankful for what you have, and express gratitude. Be thankful, appreciative, especially when we have to stretch a little harder it seems to achieve what we really want. Yes...we all have a BHG (big hairy goal), whatever it is for you, and whatever you need to do to make it happen.
Perhaps one common theme of this year or almost last year. We all pushed the reset button. Think about it, some folks reset higher, other lower, in one way or another we all reset.
Was 2009 the push the reset button year? What do you think?
Being your own editor! How often have we mentioned that you have to be your own editor to deal with the vast amount of information that is disseminated. You can easily get carried away in a tsunami of information, and opinions, coming from a variety of directions.
Was 2009 the being your own editor year? Your thoughts?
Did the North American auto industry undergo changes? What an understatement, what was is no longer, and what will be is still a work in progress. In the meantime the auto industry abhors a vacuum, some players too advantage of the vacuum, with other players being sucked in (the black hole). In addition to emerging areas of the planet gaining momentum, and prominence out of the vacuum.
Was 2009 merely the tip of the iceberg of "changes" in the auto industry? Your thoughts?
With all the buzz surrounding social media, and literally touching every aspect of our lives in one fashion or another in 2009. Did we conveniently forget that we are still human beings, that we are 2000 generations old, that we share common DNA markers that have not changed in 2000 generations. It seems that the social media online connections, reinforce or disconnect when they evolve into eyeball to eyeball connection. Does The No Ass Hole Rule still apply?
Was 2009 the year that social media started morphing into social networks? Your thoughts?
We can keep on going, but each in our own way experienced and endured changes in 2009. We do hope that at least some changes were productive for you, that you learned some valuable, and memorable lessons. We did!
