An obvious way to begin a new year is with a blank-slate mentality and a list of resolutions. Take a look at the things left on the table; the projects you started but didn’t finished, the ideas and the dreams. Your goals are there.
Is there something that can or should be kept and reworked? Is there anything that ultimately belongs in the trash bin?
