The image is taken from a 1877 map of Holyoke available electronically from the Library of Congress' website. The entire map is an enormous file in a weird format (jpg 2000?!) that made my computer act as if it had just polished off it's third Apple-tini. (If you're undaunted and want the map, go to this Library of Congress page, and type 'Holyoke, Massachusetts' into the query box.)
When it comes to buckets of wisdom? You tell me. Here are my two thoughts about New Year's resolutions:
1. If you don't set actionable AND achievable goals, you're doomed to throw your hands up in frustration. Then you'll end up on the couch eating chips and queso dip.
2. Your actionable and achievable goals? Break 'em down. Seriously. Baby step it out, and have little celebrations along the way. Goals without specific strategies are like 3-hour business meetings without an agenda: they leave you in an angry, unsteady fog. You should be nicer to yourself than that.
What's your approach to New Year's resolutions?
