Happy New Year to you! I hope you had an excellent Holiday season, but here we are in the first week of January, 2011 and we’re all back to work… right?

Did you make any resolutions for this year? Did you take Chris Brogans’ advice and come up with 3 words to guide you in 2011?

I know not everyone does, but this is certainly the time of year when people are doing a lot of reflecting, and perhaps some goal setting for the future.

It’s in the spirit of setting goals that I wanted to share this video, because it speaks about potential, (and it also happens to be very funny). This is one part of what a New Year means to me; a fresh set of months to explore our almost endless potential as people and professionals.

**Note: This video was filmed at the 2006 Gel Conference, and is now hosted on the TED Conference website, which contains a ton of knowledge and inspiration. Also, feel free to check out Seth Godins’ blog, which is always insightful and entertaining.

So Happy New Year; let’s try to fix the things that are broken if we’re able, and live up to our potential!

What are some of your goals for this year? What are some broken things that you have the potential to fix?  You can post in the comments below if you feel like sharing.
