Whether or not we were ready, 2010 is gone and 2011 is here!
Although I’ve never found a laundry list of resolutions to be very practical (after all, I manage to maintain few – if any – beyond the first two weeks), I love the sense of renewal that the new year brings! Each year, January 1st provides an opportunity to justify doing things in a brand new way – and do so with the support of your friends and colleagues.
Looking for some inspiration while you consider what you want to do differently this year? Let’s see what we can serve up for you…
