The last week of the first month of 2014 is here, the one month that seems to have sixty-two days and sixteen weeks…. Yeah, that’s how long January normally feels to most of us. But I can bet that this year round the situation is even worse for Manchester United Football Club, and more so for their fans the world over. This is a club that is always at the top of the table almost all seasons and so the fans are currently finding themselves in a very uncomfortable position now that they have not even made it to top 5 since the season began.
The other day we were having lunch with a friend and as is with any great company, we had some good conversation going. One of the things we talked about is how challenging life is becoming as years go by. It doesn’t matter which area of life you look at but the truth is, challenges are in all aspects of life. So as we were talking about the professional front, I realized that both of us were going through the same issues; betrayal, backstabbing, bad-mouthing, etc. You name it, we have either encountered it in the past or we are experiencing it now.
2014 is finally here with us and if you can read this, it means you and I have been given another chance, another opportunity and definitely another privilege to see the new year. So, without further ado, may I take this opportunity to deliver my New Year greetings to you all, and to wish you the very best of what this year has to offer.
It is exactly three days to the New Year and even though 2013 has 365 days like any other non-leap year, for me it has seemed like it has been twice as long. I am not superstitious but at some point during the year I was tempted to think that the “13” in the year was a sign of ill-luck. However, like someone once said, you don’t need to be in class for you to learn a new thing… how true this is! This year has been a serious learning ground for me.
