Clear vision for 2020: My New Year’s resolutions & goals

2020 is almost upon us, and this time we’re not only entering a new year, but a new decade. A new era. A new age. And so, I’m going big and honest with my resolutions. There’s no time or life to waste, so I’ve taken a good look at various aspects of myself – work, life, habits, etc., and have categorized resolutions for all of them. Some are pretty straightforward, and some merit a bit more explanation. I have these detailed a lot more for my own personal reasons, but here I’ll try to keep it concise. 😉

Looking back & ahead: New Year’s resolutions

I love the idea of a fresh start. The notion of reinvention and rebirth is fascinating and inspiring, and it’s something I think about often. That’s one of the reasons I love this time of year. Like most people, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting as the year draws to a close. Things I accomplished, things I learned, things I’m proud of, and things I could do better in the new year.

Here, I want to explore some of those and share what I’m aspiring to do in 2019.
