The Secret to Succeeding in ANY New Year's Resolution

  WELCOME TO 2019 – well, almost. We’re at the point where we’re counting down by minutes and seconds, rather than days and weeks. We’ve got the fizzy drinks and those little confetti-spewing gun-smoke-smelling party poppers stocked. We’re all anticipating misdating everything we write for the next few weeks (or months…in my case, it’ll be months), resulting in a whole lot of really weird-looking number 9s. And.
