A new year is starting today. Everyone seems occupied with summaries and predictions, analysis and decisions. It’s a classic time to look ahead, to come up with some New Year’s resolutions. And maybe forget all about them tomorrow. We love such dates — such milestones. We are embracing this opportunity to reflect and direct our life. Or maybe we are glad we can do it one day a year and get it over with. Or we are just doing what everyone else seems to do.

Along this road, our vision became clearer and more vivid than ever. And today I would like to share it with you.
