Whether you're ahead of the curve or a little late to the party, NOW is always a good time to set goals and plan for a more compelling future.

Look back, Take Stock and Learn
But before you start defining you New Year Resolutions, even before the crazy rush (of buying, wrapping, social events and the like) hits you like a Tsunami... and beaches you high and dry on the deserted shores of another new year – set aside just a couple hours to take stock of your past year and get clear on how you did in this past year.
As you look back 12 months, what stands out for you? What key events took place? How did you handle them?
And through them all, did you choose to become bitter or better? (it’s always a choice)
If little changed and it was simply ‘the same old’ for most of the year, how does that make you feel? And how can you make sure that you really do accomplish something significant in the year ahead?
Here are some very specific questions that will help you unearth what really matters most and get real clarity on what you want to achieve.
