Looking back at 2014 I definitely made the mistake of being a slave to daily chores and responsibilities, instead of following some well written plan of action. Something I aim to change in a big way.
The great thing about a New Year is that you can wipe the slate clean and get a fresh new beginning. The next two days I’m going to steal some quiet time to clarify my direction, and write down concrete goals for 2015.
