Happy New Year!

A fairly popular New Year's eve tradition is to define a list of resolutions for the incoming year. These resolutions become goals that you try very hard to achieve throughout the year in course. Comes year-end, you evaluate what happened, you praise the hits, and complain about the missed resolutions. You slip some of those unachieved goals into next year's resolutions, and the cycle starts all over again.

The one issue I see with New Year's resolutions is, a lot of us tend to just set way too many! The consequence? Lots of frustrations at the end of the year. So, with this in mind I have adopted a new strategy: have one single New Year's resolution that will drive a number of other initiatives.

So here is my one single New Year's resolution: increase readership to this site and all other outlets where you can find The Dynamics GP Blogster. So here is where you come in! In order to accomplish this one goal and all initiatives that derive from it I need your help: a) please keep reading my articles and sending in your comments, and b) spread the word!

How do these two seemingly simple requests help my initiatives? Very simple! If you keep reading and spreading the word, a) it will be a lot easier for the entire Microsoft Dynamics GP Community to find key pieces of information that makes their lives as easy as yours have become by reading this site, b) it will increase the adoption rate of Dynamics GP. The more users know about all the help outside of CustomerSource and PartnerSource, the less apprehensive they will be towards learning GP, and last but not least, c) it will allow me to continue helping the Community. See, the more I know what people are reading, the better I can address their needs (focused topics, workshops, series, etc). In addition, it increases my chances of coming to a place near you. One of the reasons I made it to the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2009 was due to a fairly successful campaign reaching out to you through various technical articles.

I know you follow me, I know you like (and sometimes dislike, but that ok too) what you read on this site, I know you stay tuned, but think of the benefits others could receive from the same information you get here. So, the next time you speak to your peers or colleagues just mention this site. It takes two seconds and it goes one step more to achieve my New Year's resolution.

Until next post!
