Moving Forward Smarter This is a great time of the year to take a moment and think about how you would like this year to work out for you moving forward. It is a good time to reflect on all that was, all that could have been and all that should have been. It’s a time to look at what resources were utilised best and how much more could have been done. It may be tough to make a good judgement call when in the moment, but looking back now, can you say it with all honesty, that more could have been done?
