{Publisher's Desk} W ith ever y new year comes the unique opportunity to live life a little bit better. Whether it's setting personal goals, accomplish- ing bucket-list items, or bringing our careers to new heights, most of us have made it a tradition to ring in the new year with a fresh perspective, a positive mindset and a big dose of enthusiasm. The problem is, that enthusiasm can wane quickly once we get back to the hectic pace of January. That's why mapping out a sustainable plan to accomplish your goals is essential. To that end, we've put a lot into this issue to help you start 2018 strong, and keep the momentum throughout the year.
