It’s that time of year again! Surrounded by delicious holiday leftovers, generous gifts unwrapped and a little extra down time, we can pause and reflect on the new chapter that will unfold in 2024. Have you made resolutions in the past that have fallen short of their goals? Who hasn’t? Yet this season of holiday rest and celebration really is the perfect time to look forward to the year ahead. I know people who don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions because they so often fail. If I thought that of every one of my goals, I would never get to the gym, spend extra quality time with my family or save for our future. We are not perfect, but how will we make progress if we don’t try? I’m reminded of Zig Ziglar’s famous quote, “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.”
