As the year draws to a close, it is time to take stock and set plans in place to enhance your work and your work environment.

We know in the year ahead you will still face budget challenges and more work without always having the help you need, but we hope the strategies you learn from colleagues, our magazine, and association meetings you attend will equip you with the tools and ideas you need to thrive.

May 2013 bring rich rewards to all of you, and all of us at 24×7 wish all of you a very Happy New Year.
