Resolutions, goals, plans, whatever you want to call them, most of us make some sort of game plan on things to tackle in our lives. Whether they be of the professional, personal or spiritual nature, most people generally try to better themselves. I’m one of those. I love to set goals. I love fresh starts and organizing projects. It’s part of my noodly-brain I suppose. I’m geeky, I love calendars and color-coding and all that stuff. But I digress. In…
