Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! (And Giveaway) -UPDATED Winner!


Marc is our winner, congrats! Look for an email from me with instructions on how to claim your prize!

Happy New Year from Hawaii!

I’ll resume weekly blogging next week, but in the mean time I thought I’d ask you to comment with your 2015 goals. A few of my goals for 2015 are to ride in the Haleiwa Metric Century and Honolulu Century Ride, and to publish at least one book and one article in a mainstream business mag.

Goal setting is different from resolution making in two important ways. First, good goals are usually more concrete and achievable. Second and perhaps most importantly, people actually intend to reach goals while resolutions usually die out by March. (Just compare the gym on Jan 2nd and March 2nd for some validation of that last statement!) Leaders should take the time to set personal goals, and keep them in mind as the year progresses. Don’t forget to reach a little when goal setting! A well-balanced leader can harmonize personal and professional/organizational goals; a practice that inspires his teammates to be well-balanced people too. Healthy employees make for a productive team!

Now for the giveaway!

I’m giving away a signed copy of Leading Leaders to one lucky reader. All you have to do to enter is comment below with at least one (1) of your 2015 goals! Winner will be selected at random on Jan 3, and the names posted on Jan 4th!

With warm aloha from Hawaii and best wishes from my family to you and yours!

  1. Mickey…Happy New Year! One of my initial goals for 2015 is to learn the new Swift programming language for Apple iOS and MAC applications. Here’s to a year of exploration, learning and growth. Cheers, Marc

  2. Great Post Mickey! Good luck with the next book, I loved your last one….would love to buy your brother a beer some time and just hang out on the patio (or lanai). One simple goal…keep the same size pants!! Retirement can be tough on the waistline. No more “routine” of PT with the unit nor annual “feedback” on the PFT as motivator….plus Texas BBQ on every corner!!!!

  3. My goal for 2015 is to donate some leadership books to a boy boarding military school to benefit a leadership program in honor of a USAF General (retired)! I am interested in reading your book. Thanks for your offer.
