The New Year is always looked forward to, it represents the new beginning. For me this year is something different, the aspirations and goals are a lot more challenging than I have had before.

This year it is about me and my career. I have always been motivated and determined, but now I want to push that further and really get ahead. From a personal perspective this year is about health, fitness and preparing myself for the next stage of my life. I am 25 this year and in some ways I feel I have not done enough, so in 2014 that will change.

Professionally, this year is about my HR development and #NZLEAD. My current HR role has a lot to offer and I’m going to make sure I get my hands on the pieces I need and build on the parts where I am weak. I have a fantastic mentor who I will be nagging endlessly this year to guide and help me build on my strengths and improve my weaknesses. #NZLEAD will be growing a lot this year with some exciting things coming up. I will be supporting Amanda as much as possible while also proving myself in my full-time job.

2014 is going to be an exciting year with a lot happening. I’m determined and very motivated to extend myself personally as well as professionally.

How do you plan on spending your 2014?

Happy 2014 from the HR Workaholic!
