Getting off to a good start

Needless to say, this (short) week has been all about getting my head back into the game.  With two long weekends in a row bracketing the holiday slowdown, I was starting to enjoy the type of leisurely pace referenced by Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey when she asks "what is a weekend?".  But there are mortgages to be paid, health insurance to be secured, and groceries to be bought.

So back to the halls of commerce it is.  Goals have been agreed upon with my team, and everybody's revved up their motors to undertake new and ongoing projects.  As I said last week, continuous improvement isn't sexy, but it's how we get it done.

Here's a sampling of blogs, articles, and tweets from folks who are getting off to their own good starts in 2013.
