“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbours and let every New Year find you a better man.” - Benjamin Franklin

It’s a traditional British custom that at Midnight, once the clock has chimed its twelfth chime, kisses have been kissed, Auld Lang Syne has been sung and the glasses have been raised that the back door is opened (to let the old year out) and the first dark haired man to be seen is asked to come through the front door carrying salt to represent money, coal to represent warmth and bread to represent food. Not sure how many ‘dark haired man’ would be randomly carrying salt, coal and bread in their pockets around the streets of Manchester at midnight these days but in my family it was always mum or dad who would take a piece of coal out the back door and in the front.

Anyway, this tradition now lives in my home, the single piece of coal stays in the same place and is only used for its sole purpose. I’m sure my children will grow up questioning the rhyme and reason but it got me thinking, on that short but cold walk to the front door on New Year’s Eve what traditions do I hold on to? Traditionally New Year means doing something new or different but this New Year doesn’t necessarily have to mean change but something which is paramount to both yourself and your business; This New Year is about growth.

“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered with darkness and struggle to see the light” – Sandra Kring
