Highlighted Site of the Week – Happy New Year! from USA.gov
Each year, many Americans decide to break free of the past and start anew by striving toward promising goals – New Year’s resolutions. USA.gov has listed the most popular New Year’s resolutions chosen year after year by people around the nation. From getting fit to managing debt, smoking less to finding a better job, the site not only lists popular resolutions, but also serves as a resource to a plethora of information assisting in achieving these resolution goals.
Each resolution bullet point is also a hyperlink to another site serving to educate Americans about their new, challenging goals. For example, by clicking on the “Getting Fit” link, USA.gov transfers to fitness.gov, the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. There are news highlights, videos, photos, research links, and even grants available. The “Managing Debt” link transfers to ftc.gov, the Federal Trade Commission, which explains how to self-help yourself out of “knee deep” debt. The site expands upon business information, consumer information, creditors, debt collectors, loans, and counseling.
Regardless of what resolutions are popular each year, what matters is choosing the ideal resolution for you. With each New Year comes a chance to grow personally and professionally and to see yourself as an empowered individual from Day 1 – literally. On govloop.com, government innovators from all levels can list their New Year’s resolutions online and view their peers’ resolutions. From a professional point of view, this blog might help spark some innovative resolution ideas for your New Year. In any case, whether you are a resolution revolutionary or have never had or believed in New Year’s resolutions, use January 1, 2011 as Day 1 of something new, innovative, and empowering for you.
