For those of us old enough to remember, it doesn't seem all that long ago we were preparing for the turn of the century (I feel so old) and worrying about what technology experts warned might be "digital Armageddon" when we faced the rolling, worldwide resetting of computer clocks from 1999 to 2000. Y2K, as the worried about event was called, never arrived, but the changes between the 1900's and the 2000's have been very real and they have affected us in ways most of us never saw coming.
What do you have planned for the new year?
Resolutions have been replaced by "Dry January" and everyone is dreading a return to regular work hours, the coming winter weather (if it hasn't already arrive in your neighborhood), and, of course, the credit card bills for all those online gifts you purchased (even the ones you bought for yourself). Nevertheless, this is also an excellent time to take stock of your accomplishments in 2019 and make plans to build on them for 2020.
Before you know it, we'll be planning our parties to welcome 2021.
