Happy New Year! I think we have maybe another week to use that phrase. It’s been a rocky start already for our country, but we made it through 2020, and we can take on 2021.
Speaking of 2021, like most people, I typically make New Year’s resolutions, both personally and professionally, but this year, I haven’t really made the commitment. While travel more and get healthy(er) may be on most resolution lists this year, I feel more inclined to take this year on a day-by-day basis. If 2020 taught us anything, it was to not take anything for granted and appreciate what we have, so I’m thinking I will just start there.
With restrictions slowly lifting in Philadelphia and some friends in the healthcare industry already on their second round of the vaccine, for now I’m happy to optimistically look forward to the future of this year — and maybe those resolutions will come later down the road.
What about you? Any resolutions this year? Let us know!
