As the New Year gets underway, we have great expectations by the often-lofty resolutions we make come January 1st. Whether our goals are personal, professional, or world-related, we know that, each year, the going gets tougher as New Year’s Day grows dimmer and the next 12 months stretch on with the usual ups and downs of life.
