Melissa—If you are like me, and a lot of people I know, this has not been the most desirable decade for us, especially after wading through the couple just before it. So that makes it even more understandable why we want to look ahead. I personally would rather call it a wash, and finish the year on the couch watching holiday movies. Can I get a witness? The thing is, we can’t just sit back and wish for better times because there are assignments to be completed and lessons to be learned that are necessary for the whole decade.
