There are less than two months left in 2016. That’s kind of surprising, right? Where does the time go? 

It’s all too easy to rest on your laurels and coast through this last quarter. You put in the hard work, and now it’s time to sit back and relax on the mediocrity train. Whether it’s a dead-end job that you’ve been at for years or a bad habit you’ve held onto for far too long, the same mindset can apply: “I’ll just ride this out until a better train comes along.”

Unfortunately, that line of thinking can leave you standing at the station indefinitely, while you wave at your colleagues and friends as they speed by on the way to their final destination: success.


Don’t wait until January.

So, what to do? Just hang out and eat candy through the rest of October? Too much turkey through November and December? And then finally start planning for 2017, in 2017? Hmm. Good luck with that. Maybe that’s why so many New Year’s Resolutions fail year after year – most within the first month. Start planning your trip towards your New Year’s Resolution now – whether it’s getting in shape, quitting a bad habit or starting a new career, it’s time to book your ticket and start packing your bags now, so you don’t miss the train.

Keep your sights on what you want.

In order to achieve your goals next year, you need to start your game plan with vision. If you have a vision in mind, you will need to be determined to sacrifice your short-term conveniences and comfort for that long-term reward. You have to be determined to have a steadfast, irrepressible commitment to making your circumstances better. If you’re desperate for change and to be inspired, then declare to take a stand. Hope in something better for yourself and make a choice to make it happen in 2017. 


When it seems impossible, remember: you’re not alone.

The founders of N2 saw their path towards success early on – even when their dream didn’t make sense to others. They started a print media company as the digital age was dawning. They had the vision to produce well-crafted niche publications that turned neighborhoods into communities, all while imparting their values to inspire the company’s culture. To be sure, there were plenty of onlookers who said it was impossible. It wasn’t.

Duane and Earl got on board with their idea and saw it through. After years of hard work, this vision has manifested a company culture that is reflective of those values, and that’s made us successful. They chose to start ahead of the curve and prepared for success well before it arrived. Our successful and fun environment, coupled with team unity and a happy work-life balance that proliferates in our company today, is the result of Duane and Earl’s original resolution for a better life some 12 years ago. 

 

In 2017, N2’s resolution is to continue positively impacting those around us while building communities throughout our nation and beyond. And we’re planning today. We are resolved to reach our goals. We have set our direction to the horizon, certain that we are destined for greatness; and we need more talented individuals to help us get there. If you’re stuck on the train to nowhere, or you haven’t even left the station, the N2 train is boarding now. Don’t sit idly by watching others succeed; set your resolution and get on board.
