This is my first entry into “A Very Good Year,” a journal account of my year in 2014 practicing the Keys to Optimal Living. First, you might notice that it is still 2013. You caught me. One cannot wait for success, so I’m taking action right away. I’m using the weeks leading up to the New Year to get prepared and to set the stage in the brainstorming and planning of my 2014 resolutions and goals.
