Don't forget your career in making New Year's resolutions
Even if you abhor the mainstream practice of making New Year's resolutions, you've got to admit it makes sense to use this manufactured fresh start to assess your life and who you want to be.
For those who do make resolutions, we often focus on our personal lives: lose weight, be more patient with the kids, call Grandma at least once a month.
But have you considered resolutions focused on your career? Outside of the vague "get a better job" resolve some people make, few of us get specific about what we want to accomplish during the next 365 days.
Here are some great articles I found that I hope inspire you to make a detailed plan for what you will accomplish at work in 2014:
• Forbes.com: The career resolution that will put you in charge in 2014 (includes a video on how to stick to your resolutions).
• Inc.com: What's your business resolution for next year? (This one features the resolutions of 10 founders and CEOs.)
• Thevarguy.com: Top 7 business resolutions for 2014. (These are resolutions for your overall business.)
And, in an effort to keep you all focused on your retirement planning, there's this helpful piece:

Happy New Year!
