Happy Blogging New Year!

Happy 2011 everyone! I hope 2010 was good for you and trust 2011 will be even better. A new year means a new start so whatever good or bad may have happened last year, forget about it. It’s done for and gone. 2011 is a new start and a new opportunity for you to renew your blog, your vision, your spirit and yourself.

I do not have any New Year’s resolution. I don’t believe in them. Instead I have clearly defined goals that I want to achieve by a certain time frame. I feel a goal without a time limit is not a goal but merely a dream. If you wish to achieve anything in life, you have to place a time limit on it. A time limit forces you to take action instead of sitting on the couch saying someday Iโ€™ll get there. Donโ€™t be afraid to fail. Know that failure is required in order to succeed. You will not find a successful person who doesnโ€™t have a few stories to tell about their failures.

May 2011 be YOUR year to hit all your goals. Happy Blogging New Year!

Happy New year!

      Happy New Year!
      I have goals as well. Resolution isn’t the appropriate word for them ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I wish everyone success this year.

      1. Hey John,

        Thanks for the wishes and an insightful post.

        I too feel that resolutions are just good intentions that are forgotten within days.

        Goals are specific and measurable if used properly.

        Best Wishes for 2011 to you and Everyone.

        amazing photos john,you should go pro..

        1. dotCOMreport says:

          He really should!

        2. He is pro … after all he is earning from those photos my friend.

          1. Kirk Taylor says:

            Funny, I’ve got thousands of photos and I havn’t been leveraging the value of them on my blog.

            Looks like it’s time to start editing those photos and telling the stories behind them!

            Thanks guys and happy new year

          2. Those photos are big assets for you and if your visitors allow than you should add them.

            Simply add flickr with your blog and enjoy it.

      Ya,you seem to have a wealth of knowledge john..thanks

      1. He sure dose…..Inspiration for tons of thousand of bloggers

        1. It’s fun to read the blogs that people made after learning from John.

          1. Yes … John was really inspirational to many people and bloggers.

            John should start a category of new bie as well where new bie can read and learn.

  4. Happy New Year!

    I agree about not setting resolutions. It’s better to just let things fall into place naturally. And I’ve found that a lot of people that set resolutions don’t even follow half of them & then they say they’ll do it the follow year. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    1. Hey Bradley,

      Are we traveling in a time machine into 201? Is it AD or BC?

      I think you missed a 1at the end.

      Happy 2011.

      1. Tree Lover says:

        Wow, time travel is possible with just one missing stroke of a key! The secret is out! Though what would we really expect to find in 201?

  8. Yepeeeeeee, I must say you put it well, resolutions keeps on changing each year and not measurable but a goal can be SMART, Thanks for the good motivation in the beggining of 2011.

  9. Craig White says:

    Thanks for your inspiration and leadership in 2010. I began following your blog this past year and I have gained more knowledge from your blog than any other form of education I found out here in the blogosphere.

    Thanks for all your help and knowledge,

    1. Kirk Taylor says:

      I’ll add to that… John is a genuine guy with lots of value while asking little of others. You are a great man….
