What skill would you
like to improve
in the new year?

“My plan for the new year is making myself a happier person and not relying on others to supply that happiness. I just finished reading Happiness Is an Inside Job,by John S. Powell, and it has made me a firm believer in the concept.”

“I would like to become more technology-savvy. I don’t want to be at the mercy of computer programmers every time I need a change made to a website or database.”
