New Year’s Resolutions For Smart People | PEOPLE BUILDING |

Normally I shun the predictable posts, leaving them up to some of the other authors here. I’m not a fan of following the crowd and, somehow, popping off “trends to watch” and “New Year’s Resolutions” themes seems unoriginal to me. Sometimes, being unoriginal is, to me, the worst thing I could be with respect to you, fair reader.

I’ve also grown weary of the formulaic blog posts. Top Fives and Tens and Sevens and How Tos … all link bait. Yeah, they work. But they’ve become the cookie cutter, Mad Lib processed meat — dare I say “spam” — of the blogosphere. Typically, I’m happy to let Social Media Examiner, MarketingProfs and HubSpot have ‘em.
