Welcome back to work everyone! We hope you had a great time over the silly season and the typically laid-back and relaxing January that follows. Some people only managed a few days off, before getting stuck straight back into things in early January (usually tying up those pesky pre-Christmas loose ends). The Australian tradition has always been that the year doesn’t really officially begin until we have all had a big barbecue on Australia Day!
So here we are, February 2011. How are those New Year's resolutions holding up? What about the big plans and schemes you hope to unfold as the year rolls out? If you live in Queensland or Victoria, many of those plans might have been literally washed away – or perhaps the floods and other extreme weather have inspired you to commit even more strongly to your stated goals and ambitions, despite the setbacks.
Are you ready to start 2011? Any projects in mind? New Website? Revamp the old Website? Marketing your business in a new way? Whatever you have in mind, start early... because you know things always take longer than you expect. Have you put a plan together? A to-do list, or mind-map? What about considering the resources you might need, both in terms of budgets and materials, but also time and support from associates and suppliers? From our experience, it is highly likely that you might be in need of a little support from someone who might have been on the journey that you are planning on embarking on. We can help you sort out all your plans and ideas and start getting it into gear.
Here at Cyrius, we had a very interesting year last year, in our little Web design world, here in Sydney. We took on some exciting and challenging projects, new clients and even managed to completely re-design and re-launch our own Website. 2011 looks to be the year where all that ground work last year might well have been preparing us for take-off. We also scaled back in a few areas to make ourselves more flight-ready, allowing a few projects to be passed on to some of our associates, so that we could really concentrate on the ones we are passionate about. Perhaps this is what you are planning on doing. De-cluttering and simplifying, so you can really focus on what you want to do. What better time to do this than right now, freshly into a new year and full of motivation!
Here's to the year ahead!
