In the world of reruns, there’s a saying, if you’ve never seen it, then it’s new to you.

As we near the end of 2009, I wanted to share with you some of the posts that I believe will help you as you tackle challenges, opportunities, and set the stage for innovation and growth in 2010.

Even if you read the original posts when they initially hit the Web, chances are that their lessons, experiences, and insights still apply today – perhaps more so.  The rate of innovation and insight shared online is blinding and overwhelming. Sometimes a refresher is all we need to push things forward. Remember, the price of personal and professional relevance is directly related to the cost of the investment in your education, learning, and experience.
