One of my favorite things to do as the new year approaches is hit many of my favorite blogs and find some of their writings about the resolutions they made for the year past – or the resolutions they intend to make for the coming year. I almost always find something insightful in such discussions, whether it’s insightful in the sense that I learn something about humanity or that I actually learn something useful about how to put together a good plan for success. Here are a few of my recent favorite reads on the topic of the new year.
