Towards A Creative New Year, Final Instalment. We’re all trained to notice the gap. Between what we have and what we want, between where we are and where we hope we’re going, between the person we are and who we’d like to be. That’s where the new year’s resolutions slip in, even though we know they don’t work. Through that gap. That hollow feeling of not doing, having or being enough. How about this for an Read More

(See below) How are those resolutions for 2011 coming along? If you’re like most people, they already lie broken and discarded. One widespread study found that 90% of us break 90% of our resolutions within the first week of the new year.
