Editor’s note: Veteran entrepreneur, author and blogger Joe Procopio embraces a theme- not a resolution – for 2017.
DURHAM, N.C. – I don’t do resolutions. I don’t. The reasons why have been well documented. What I do instead, is themes. A theme isn’t a resolution, nor is it a slogan. A theme, if I do it right, not only neatly encapsulates everything I want to be and do and try in the new year, but it’s an evolutionary statement as well, applying not just to me, but how I see the world around me.
Therefore, I believe my theme can help you as well. It’s doesn’t have to be your theme. In fact, it shouldn’t be your theme. But my theme might help inform your theme.

This is a statement I’ve been thinking about for a while. Personally, it represents a lot of what I need to be able to do in terms of pulling success out of failure, creating something from nothing, and generally finding happiness in a world that doesn’t allow you time to be happy, let alone find that happy in the first place.
I’m not immune to personal disaster or disappointment or life changes that leave me reeling. I had those in 2016. This is how I’m dealing with them.
Professionally, I’ve landed on this statement as a prescription for not only what I go through as an entrepreneur — although in that, I think it buttons up my needs pretty well — but also what I do with the things I do to find satisfaction in my life.
There’s much more. Read the full post at:
