    Hi Niks,

    What a wonderful post!

    One more benefit of knowing our strength is that we can feel more confident about ourselves.

    Knowledge is power Agreed.

    You have mentioned a very good action plan. I will surely think about it. :)

    Thanks Niks. Happy new year. :)

      Oh wait we are considering them as ten by adding them, I mean…

      3 strengths + 5 knowledge + 2 behaviours = 10 things ?

    Excellent advice Nikshep!

    You bring up some interesting points which I agree with. When we know our strengths we can build on that. This new self-awareness will help us to remember our worth and our purpose and keep us focus on the things we are naturally blessed with.

    Knowledge and information are two different things like you said. I’m blessed that you wrote this post because I can think of five things I want to learn this coming year. I see myself becoming more insightful in 2015 as far as blogging is concerned. I said that because there are a lot of bloggers I associate with now who are professionals like yourself, and are willing to share their knowledge with me and others.

    One behavior I like to change is being on my cell phone when I’m trying to write or study. No matter how focus I am if my phone is near by I’m going to pick it up and check out Facebook, Twitter etc…

    These 10 things I will put into action right away. Thanks for posting them and have a Happy New Year!

    Hello, Nik,

    Excellent article and good thoughts. You know, I don’t make New Year resolutions, but plan my quarter/year (ever since reading The 12-Week Year) and go accordingly.

    Your first point is awesome – know your strengths. Yes, by all means – I need to know these. I do, but could definitely get more in tune with that knowledge.

    I absolutely agree with you that knowledge is power. My plan for 2015 is to read much more then I did in 2014. Listening to podcasts is a great way for me to stay active and make good use of my time, as well as keeping up with new topics of interest that come on the horizon.

    Definitely sharing this with friends, Nik – Great job.

    Happy New Year!

    • Hi Carol,

      The 12 year week is a great resource to teach one about effective time-management :) I am excited to have you visit StumbleuponLife! Good luck with your plans for the new year! Have an awesome 2015!
      -Nik

    Great post and a lot to thing about. I like where mentioned that Knowledge is Power. I would add that knowledge is power if you use the knowledge that you have gained. What you learned will not help you unless you use it. Otherwise it is like a box full of money hidden in the attic gathering dust. It does you no good.
    I look forward to reading much more in the year to come.

    In general, people do make a new year resolution without knowing their positives and the areas of improvement. Your post has given an insight how one can in a logical way proceed with new year resolution.

    Good one.

    And when i read of new year resolution, it always reminds me of my new year resolution which i had taken when i was in college. 6 packs were craze then. I did resolute that i would be a hardcore gymmer and would reduce on my fat and flab. Alas, this resolution is still under implementation path.

    Cheers to you Nikshep.
