I must confess that I never been one to make a long list of resolutions as I begin a New Year, even though I embrace the opportunity to reorganize, reframe, and repower myself for new opportunities and challenges. It is an ideal time to question the work that I am doing as the Marketing & Outreach Coordinator for a pioneering Solar Energy Company based near Asheville, NC, and how to do it better. (Sundance Power Systems has been around 18 years… shouldn’t the industry be well past “pioneering” at this point??? That’s the point!!!)
And so, when I came across “Solar New Year Resolutions” by Paula Mints in Renewable Energy World.com, the list of 10 resolutions that she put forth resonated with me, and left me inspired to rededicate myself to the work that needs to be done.
At the end of the day, # 10 sums it up “We are all in this together and are committed to the same causes – developing, analyzing, writing about, and deploying this amazing technology that is one of the answers to the global disaster that is climate change. WORK TOGETHER IN 2013 TO CHANGE THE ENERGY PARADIGM.”
That’s what drives me to face this New Year’s unknowns, and you can be sure I’ll do it with “pragmatic optimism” (see #2.) May 2013 be known as “The Year of Empowerment with Solar!”
