Back in late August I got a chance to walk through the Central Library in downtown Seattle. I would have missed this had Chase Jarvis not been so emphatic in pointing out to me that it was a must visit. During my walk through I worked my way up to the highest point that I could and found a small platform to look down to the first floor. If I recall correctly it was about 8 stories up and looking down at the 1st floor book displays I could hardly make out a single book. The only truly recognizable forms were the large bookshelves. It made me realize how much information resided in the building. Where am I going with this allegory?
Starting off a new year and seeing ones future as it relates to individual goals is very much like trying to read a book in a library from 8 stories up. It’s impossible, but the first step is knowing what you want to find and/or achieve. The next step is to plan and chart a course to find or get what you want. So what lies ahead for you in 2009?
