Happy New Year 2009? What are your resolutions for 2009?

It is the time of the year that people begin to wrap up and assess the performance with the view of improving it.

The year 2008 has witnessed the many changes, expected or unexpected, in politics, economy, financial industry and people. The collapse of the financial industry has triggered off many other issues. Some experts predict that 2009 and beyond can be akin to the depression of the 1930’s or worse, but then bad times or good times there will be successes and failures.

Social networking and connection are powerful strategies for leveraging, collaboration and co-operation. It is the synergy that may improve the chances of survival for the career or business. It is about sharing and caring that can provide us the happiness, harmony and peace of mind.

It is about the opportunities at our disposal, and some are luckier than others. Without luck, there is also the possibility of goal setting, faith and blessing.

Even though in general the outlook for 2009 is rather gloomy, but the conventional wisdom tells us that for every crisis there are opportunities as well.

Millions of jobs will be lost in the months to come, making it very important to treasure our core competence while continue to learn new things to become more flexible and adaptable to the turbulent economy, volatile world and the dynamic socio-economic landscape.

Work hard and be happy!
