No, we aren't off our rockers in wishing you a Happy New Year! We just consider fall the season of renewal and rejuvenation - almost like the start of a new calendar year. September is the new January. After a leisurely summer, September seems to have so much energy and promise attached to it, don't you think? Professionals head back to work after the long Labor Day weekend, cooler weather replaces warm summer breezes, children start a new school year, and wardrobes soon get switched over.
All this energy and anticipation for a new season is the perfect time to review your goals and resolutions – are you on track to accomplish what you want for the rest of the year? If not, you still have time to change course.
As you think about what you want to achieve this year, we hope you remember that social skills lead to success. 85% of one’s professional success is connected to one’s social skills -so they can definitely help you climb the corporate ladder or succeed as an entrepreneur. And if that’s the statistic for professional success just imagine what the impact is on one’s personal life!
Solid social skills make every human interaction you have more pleasant. And when we say manners help improve every human relationship you have, we also mean manners help you with yourself. Manners are the foundation of self-care. So take this time and decide what you want out of life (professionally and personally), set some goals and refocus on your manners and social skills so that they work for you, instead of against you. We can’t wait to see what you do next!
Have a marvelous week -
