I love to step outside and watch the first rays of the sun early in the morning. There’s something about the newness of the day that gives me energy.
Whether the smell of a new car or the ref’s whistle signaling the start of a game, I love beginnings.
The new year is full of hope and opportunity.
Here are some quotes to inspire your new year. To your success!
It was a crisp autumn evening when I drove to the radio station in Columbus for an interview. Not knowing what to expect or where the questions would take us, I decided to just enjoy the experience.
My interviewer was Maureen Metcalf. With her extensive knowledge of leadership, she made the process enjoyable with insightful questions and a great conversation. In addition to her role as CEO of Metcalf & Associates, Maureen is the host of VoiceAmerica, an international radio show focusing on innovative leadership. She also writes about leadership and organizational transformation for Forbes.com.

- How to define the competition so you can win

A few years ago, I confessed to abiliophobia and many of my readers rushed immediately to the doctor to ask about this affliction! Because many of you share it with me. It’s the fear of being without a book or something to read. I will hyperventilate if I am trapped on an international flight without plenty of books.
