Resolutions: Accomplishing Your Goals Through Action

This is the time of year when a lot of us look at our accomplishments in life and start to make some necessary adjustments. Personally, I don’t like the word resolution. It sounds too stiff, inflexible and boring! I much prefer the phrase long-term goal. Like most people, I have a lot of goals to accomplish.
