Time to reflect on what you intended and accomplished this year. In this week’s Tip, I help you get started by sharing my results and learnings for 2013. We lead off, though, with my holiday gift to you!

This week’s Tip by Michael Neill encourages you to be even more free form, trusting your creativity to shine through.
