New Years Communications Resolutions

Happy New Year. I’m not a big fan of New Year resolutions, but the turning of the page last night on the calendar did make me think about a few ideas. Here are my initial top three Communications resolutions for 2009. Anyone with at least one?

Write the MEDIAtor blog more frequently.

Provide a perspective on the highs and lows of the PR/Communications industry.

Keep up the work life balance in a tough economy

Write the blog more frequently. By this I also mean staying on top of all the rapid changes in social media. From Facebook, to Twitter, to LinkedIn, there are only so many hours in the day. But if we don’t stay on top of how all of us receive and send information, we’ll be stuck in the days of 3 networks.

Highs and lows on PR/Communications. We’d like to hear more about PRWins (see earlier Blogs). It’s not that PR should be a winner at the expense of other disciplines, in the communications efforts of companies, associations and government entities. However, when PR comes up with an idea and executes we should be sharing and crowing.

Work/life balance is harder in a tough economic time. As hard as we all can work, we can’t recharge, reflect, think or improve without some time to relax and kick back.

Happy New Year. Anyone with a resolution?
