It’s the beginning of October and I want to wish you a “Happy New Year!” – SCN Encourager

And you thought October was just about loading up on Halloween candy…

But it isn’t.

Did you know that October is when top-flight organizational leaders and our most admired “movers and shakers” decide the new vistas they’d like to conquer in 2016?

They don’t wait until New Year’s Day to make their resolutions.

They’re doing it now.

I thought I was doing pretty well to get a handle on my resolutions for 2015 the week before the SuperBowl back in February.

The best leaders and organizational influencers make up their minds in October, a good three months before the big ball drops in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

This allows them to stride toward their key objectives while I’m marking time “winterizing” my house and still trying to locate my favorite gloves stored somewhere in the basement.

Along with fine tuning their personal road maps for the New Year at least 90 days before folks like me, high achievers do other things differently in life and on the job, too.

There are a bunch of studies out there that reveal their secrets.

I’ve been reading up.

So, don’t be shocked when you see my 10 point Success Habits checklist tomorrow.

And don’t pooh-pooh my checklist yet, either.

It’ll be grounded in research, rather than personal experience.

(Like I had a choice!)
