Happy New Year!

Noise makers are squeaking. Horns blaring. Glasses chinking. 2013 is here.
From my window
For me, rainbows have always signified a turning point. When I've seen them light up the sky, it's typically been at a break in the weather, which reminds me that stormy times won't last forever.
Time's LightBox closed the year with Rainbows in the Frame: Emblems of Hope in a Dark Year, pairing their hopes for 2013 with rainbows from 2012. I too closed out my year -- as well as my tenure at the technology company where I'd worked for over four years -- with a series of rainbows.
Now don't get me wrong. For me, 2012 wasn't a bad year. In 2012, cubes and I welcomed our daughter Gates into the world. The new design for the blog went live. I left my 9to5 job of four plus years to do my own thing.
What are your goals for the new year?
My goals for 2013 are:
  • Take time to be thankful for what I have.
  • Continue to publish a blog that you enjoy reading.
  • Prioritize more effectively, giving myself permission not to do all the things.
  • Relaunch my marketing business.
  • Work with focused creatives and technology evangelists.

Ciao Bella!
