Please read this article by Oliver Sacks. He writes about brain plasticity — a $10 phrase for life-long learning and the ability of the brain to change and adapt. If you do one thing this year, commit to life-long learning, then take a positive step in that direction. Some new course, a new reading program, a commitment to finding some creative outlet. Do it. You will reap a harvest that will not only sustain you, but foster your growth.

Happy New Year, everyone!
