Beginnings are often associated with goals, expectations. It is not different with new years. People make resolutions or set goals, ideally think through them with concrete planning. For me, too, the beginning of the year is an exciting time, for much the same reason: There is so much potential.

More on this in the future. For now, here is to change.
