…And A Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve has come again, and it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions. A new year means a fresh start; it is an opportunity to reassess—your life, your work, and your self—and separate the wheat from the chaff; an opportunity to leave the unhelpful things behind with 2008 and bring in new and better habits and ideas in 2009.

Interestingly, with so many people and over so many years, many of the New Year’s Resolutions being made each New Year’s Eve are the same. About.com has compiled a list of the 10 most common New Year’s Resolutions, and many of them sound awfully familiar: Spend time with family, get fit, get out of debt… But what this list really means is that through the years and through cultures, what is important to us remains the same: Family, health, and security.

What are your resolutions for 2009? Are they on this list? And do you have a plan to go about achieving these new goals? We would love to know what our readers and clients have on their minds for the upcoming year.

Whatever your plans for the New Year, whether you have resolutions or not, our firm wishes you the very best in all your endeavors in 2009, may it be a year of health, joy and prosperity.
