Clear Out the Old, Ring in the New—and Give Back
The week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day is usually a nice, quiet time to clear out
one year before starting the next. Pay bills, clear off the desk, file, sort, clean out any drawers,
cupboards or closets that did not receive close attention during lockdown. For me, these tasks are
more important than resolutions. They pave the way for a fresh, new year.
