The Importance of “Why?”
Socrates is quoted as saying, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” His phrase, “not worth living,” sounds extreme to me, but it rightly emphasizes the value of self-examination. To encourage self-examination among library leaders and library organizations, Library Journal and The BA David Company sponsored a library leadership event, Lead the Change, presented around the country in 2015.

So I googled "new year resolutions" to get assistance with my resolutions for 2015. Here are a few links I located which seemed helpful. Hope you think they are as well.
