I like to start each year with a list of New Year's Resolutions, and some years my list has been more successful than in others. But even when I abandoned my commitments before Spring, the process was worthwhile. There were periods in my life when I didn't devote much time to self-reflection, so starting out a year by taking a close look at myself was a good thing.
As I often do in December, in recent weeks I asked some of my coaching clients about what they'd like the next year to bring. What will success look like in 2014? Where do they want to focus their energy this year?
