Growing up in the Boston area, I never got the Groundhog Day concept. Shadow or not, New Englanders know we're still looking at six plus more weeks of wintry weather on February 2. That seems especially true today when no groundhog is going to be making its way through the 60 inches of snow to bother checking for its shadow.
But maybe we can make Groundhog Day meaningful in another way. One month into the year is a great time to check-in on how the New Year's resolutions are faring. If you're doing great, pat self on back and keep going! If you've gotten off track, take stock of what might be getting in the way of achieving your goals, and make some adjustments.
I'm doing reasonably well on my Social Capitalist resolutions, but there's room for improvement. I've been blogging more consistently, have been working on network cultivation and our learning network (though would like to improve further on both of those counts.).
