You patched up the server issues that cropped up over the holiday period, and now you can take a quick breather to reflect on what the next 12 months have in store for you. One question that might be popping into your head is: ‘how do I want to do things differently this year?’ The holiday season is a good time to reflect on how content one is with one’s career on a day-to-day level, and how improvements can be made in the coming year.
