A Thought For The New Year

2009 has landed, bringing with it not just the obligatory hangover but yet another wave of companies falling into administration, fresh concerns for so many formerly stable business sectors and a sizeable chunk of the country's workforce fearing for their jobs. In fact Flybe has picked up on the extent of our insecurity announcing, this morning, that they will be offering insurance to customers allowing them to claim a full refund on their travel costs if they lose their jobs.

With the economy so out of kilter there has probably been no better time to develop your skills. Take that night course you've been talking about for so many months, buy that Language DVD, start working on that brilliant business idea you had in the pub over the holidays, put yourself forward for that first aid course or an advanced industry qualification.
Make yourself indispensable in 2009

I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
- Pablo Picasso

I hope each of you have a happy, peaceful and successful 2009.
