Here we are, staring down the barrel of a new year. Fresh and shiny and unspoiled like the newfallen snow.

I find it really helpful to focus on the opportunity, to use this as a chance to be optimistic. If that leads you toward making resolutions or reviewing your plan, wonderful!

For me, this time is about re-centering. It’s not so much that I had a bad plan last year or I need to change my direction.

Instead, it’s about thinking through how I’m going to create new opportunities to get closer to my life and business goals. A lot of things are different from last year, but my mission isn’t. That’s much deeper.

What about you? What are the new opportunities you want to create this year?
