Editor's Note

Now is as good a time as any to get your 2024 goals underway!

It really felt like January just flew by, didn’t it? We blinked, and all of a sudden, we’re well into 2024. I hope your New Year has gotten off to a good start, and your resolutions and goals are coming along as well. And if not, now is as good a time as any to start!

Maybe you had all these grand ideas over the winter break about what your 2024 would look like, and that hasn’t panned out. It happens to all of us. The important thing is to not wallow. Accept that January is done and gone, and embrace all the time and opportunities you have in front of you. It only takes 20 hours to start learning a new skill, and anywhere from 10,000 to 25,000 to become an expert. Ignore those larger numbers for now and focus on that 25. With just an hour a day, you can become competent in something new before February is done. Long story short, it’s never too late to get going on those goals!

Be sure to check out our latest articles below, and be sure to check out our video interviews with Canadian professionals.
