On the first Saturday of 2017, I decided to write myself a little note here for the new year. 2017 is the year to be brave.

It is about bold ideas and bold actions. It’s about going where one hasn’t been before, inward and outward. It’s about making positive transformation tangible. It’s about seeing your ideas enacted in the real world, influencing business, organization and behavior of others. It’s about making a palpable, concrete social and economic mark for the better. It’s about being an agent of positive, sustainable transformation. It’s about changing people’s minds and inspiring them to change their actions. It’s about doing things differently, to better results and to greater satisfaction. It’s about global reach and accountability.

This week was the first card of the 52 page deck. Make every draw count.
