It’s Christmas Eve day and I hope you’re all spending some quality time with your families. I know I am. This has been an eventful year for me and it’s being capped off in a grand way.
We just launched our new website. You can tell by the look of our blog that we have a new look. I hope that you take some time and visit us at www.stage2planning.com to look at the entire new site and let me know what you think. I hope you like it.
Now to the real point of this post…..I want to thank all of you who take the time to read my posts. This blog is a labor of love more than it is a vehicle for creating new business. I have a passion to learn new things and write about what I learn with you.
The best thing for me is there are many who read my blog and communicate with about what they think. I’m hoping that sometime in the future we’ll be able to have comments and we can start a real conversation. Until then, sending me emails is the best we can do.
The biggest compliment you can give a blogger is to read what they write. It’s a real honor to meet readers as I travel. I recently was at a seminar in Florida and was greeted by someone who told me she read my blog all of the time. That was such a huge compliment for me. Not only was I complemented that she read my blog, I was complemented because she’s a heavy weight in her own right.
I know that writing allows me to learn and deepen my understanding of many issues. There is something about writing that allows me to own material that I’m just thinking about. It’s part of the joy and value in writing.
I will continue writing at least as often as I’ve written this year. I did dial back my writing to three days a week while I was writing the text for our new website. I’ll probably stay at this level as I work on a book that’s been inside me for a few years.
In the meantime I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Having you read what I write is thrilling for me. Having you comment and let me know what you think is even better.
I’ve been very blessed this year. It was only five years ago that I just completed a stem cell transplant and was back and forth to the hospital emergency room. Those days seem awfully far away. I only hope that it stays that way.
Please have a wonderful and safe holiday season. Give your family a hug. Tell them how much you love, appreciate and value what they do for you. We don’t do that enough….oh, and keep doing it during 2014.
Thanks with deep appreciation.
