Time flies when you’re having fun! The first four months of 2011 have flown by and, if you’re working smarter rather than just harder, you should be having more fun.

The close of the first quarter is a good time for a mini-review and adjustment, if necessary, before the year slips away.

Then, we’ll check your progress so far with those pesky resolutions.
