Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.

Changes Sought for Psych Disorder Discharges

WASHINGTON — After nearly 30,000 servicemembers were forced out of the military for “personality disorders,” often after combat service, a bipartisan House coalition hopes to require the Pentagon to review those cases in the hopes that some veterans could receive benefits.

Claim Leave Time by Deadline or Risk Losing It

Air Force Times by Jeff Schogol

You earned your leave time, now it’s time to use it before new rules kick in that limit the number of days you can carry over each year.

The rules were relaxed in the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act, which allowed service members to carry up to 75 days forward to the next fiscal year.

While the Defense Department is working with Congress to extend the carry-over authority beyond Sept. 30, there’s no guarantee a deal will be struck, so you could lose up to 15 days of leave Oct. 1, when the temporary leave carryover expires.

If Congress does not extend the temporary leave carryover, airmen who have more than 60 days of leave accrued must use it by Oct. 1.

The Air Force Times by Rick Maze

The measure now goes to the White House for President Obama’s signature.
