I love the beginning of the year. Not just because the commercial deluge that is the holidays comes to an end, but because there's a palpable optimism in the air; a sense of renewal.
While you contemplate your goals for the new year, remember what is most important when it comes to setting them: goals that are more readily realized are meaningful and personal.
Too often, at this time of the year, we pay excessive attention to "resolutions," when we should pay more attention to solutions. It's solving the problems of others that will reward you.
When looking into your new year's crystal ball, look closely for pivotal opportunities that will elevate you. Such opportunities are often camaflouged by risks. The greater the risks you take, the greater the progress you make.
