Web Talent’s 2015 New Years Resolutions
My yoga class was more crowded than usual last week. Angela’s a great instructor, so I’m not surprised. Still, when your yoga mat is almost on top of your neighbor’s Warrior 3 can be a struggle to do without kicking someone in the face.
It’s a new year, and everyone has a list of resolutions for 2015. Maybe they’re left over from last year. Maybe you’re one of the few people who accomplished 2014’s goals, and 2015’s aren’t going to stop you either.
Last year we had a fitness goal board in our office, where everyone’s anonymous goals were written and it was a daily reminder to us. Well, it was until in February the goal board fell down and mysteriously disappeared.
Taking a different route this year, I polled the Web Talent team to see what their work-related goals were for 2015 – and we’ve got some good ones!
