Your big question for 2009: What do you live for?

Looking back and looking forward as the year turns helps us make sense of what we are about, what we are for, where we are going. And to adjust course if our lives aren't going quite the way we had wanted. There's a sense in which we step out of our daily lives as the year turns, consider it from outside-in, before we step back into it again and get caught up once more. To 'lead' our own lives we really need to do this more than once a year, don't you think?
