Hands Up, Chin Down… this is the most exciting part of our year! Already my journal is full of ideas, drawings, plans, doodles, strategies, and odd symbols I can only decipher. Even Coleen will hi-jack it and write a few of her ideas or just a sweet note to say she loves me. My Journal is a living and breathing document bobbing and weaving with the ebbs and flows of business, e-commerce, life, parenting, and anything else that throws punches or unexpected jabs.
In boxing, bobbing and weaving is a defensive technique that moves the head both beneath and laterally of an incoming punch. As the opponent's punch arrives, the fighter bends the legs quickly and simultaneously shifts the body either slightly right or left.
Over the next week we will begin formalizing a strategic 2023 plan for Holtz Leather that will include many ideas from my journal entries. I have a pretty good intuition that 2023 is going to be a fight. So put your gloves on and get ready!
I believe journaling can be the deciding factor between success and failure. So this year get a Holtz Journal and begin strategizing your goals and ideas for 2023! Below is a picture of my journal of 6 years and it looks better than the day I made it. Notice the Patina of the leather from use… The one on top is a new journal mine is on the bottom.
