2009, by all accounts, is going to be a difficult year. But you don’t have to let it get to you. Here are a few thoughts to get the year started:
You will have to work hard this year. So will everybody else.
The work isn’t just going to come to you. You’re going to have to get creative to get it. The work is out there, if you’re willing to go find it.
Every once in a while you’re going to get kicked in the teeth. Kick back.
You have options. You always have options.
It’s not as bad as the media makes it out to be.
And above all else, remember this: Every once in a while you just need to stop, take a deep breath, and relax.
