What New Year's Resolution Do You Prefer: An Hour at the Gym Every Day, or an Hour (Total) With a Financial Professional?

I recently had my own Groundhog Day scenario, but it wasn't about improving my physical health and wellness. I took part in a research project involving one-on-one interviews with Americans of all ages and backgrounds, to hear about their retirement plans and overall financial wellness.

Albany's Groundhog Day and New York's Secret Anti-Corruption Law

Before I was a criminal defense lawyer, I was a prosecutor. Before I was a prosecutor I was the Senior Adviser for Government Reform for the Majority Conference in New York State Senate (the irony of the title considering the stream of corruption prosecutions and convictions since is not lost on me.)

In the recent Republican Debate, Ohio Governor John Kasich commented that Donald Trump has struck a cord in America -- that people are angry and fed up. Since then, Trump has continued his ascent in the polls and the reality of this anger has set in.

Modernity is ubiquitous. There's little way of escaping it, unless you're convicted of something and become an uncooperative prisoner. Then you will be put in solitary confinement, still a widely used form of punishment, which has little to commend it beyond the fact that it so steadfastly avoids the notion of progress.

What Do Your Life and Groundhog Day Have in Common?

Every choice we make leads us closer to, or further away, from being the person we desire to be. The more conscious we are in the choices we make, the clearer we are on who we are. That's how powerful our freedom to choose is.

I feel a bit like the "astrologer version" of Punxsutawny Phil, the legendary groundhog in the movie Groundhog Day, who emerges each spring from his burrow to announce whether - weather conditions will be good or bad.

Sunday Roundup

This week, the Oscar race heated up, with Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel leading the way with nine nominations each. In much more serious news, the planet itself continues to heat up, with NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announcing that 2014 was the hottest year in the 135 years since record-keeping began. What's more, the next 10 hottest years have all been since 1998. "The record 2014 temperatures underscore the undeniable fact that we are witnessing, before our eyes, the effects of human-caused climate change," said climate scientist Michael Mann. Of course, we've seen this movie before -- with alarming warnings about our steadily warming world repeatedly met with inaction. It's like "Groundhog Day," only without the laughs. Unless we rewrite the script, and push our leaders to adopt the long-term thinking that this challenge requires, we'll soon be facing a [SPOILER ALERT] very unhappy ending.

Recently I lost my job, rather unexpectedly, and have felt adrift. My options at this juncture seem to be: 1) Move on determinedly, or 2) hopelessly spin my wheels. On Monday, just before I heard Harold Ramis had passed away at age 69, I was doing the latter

We Are the Groundhog: Harold Ramis' Finest Moment

Harold Ramis, the wonderful comic writer-director, has died at age 69. He made us laugh, which is gift enough in this world. That his films, like Caddyshack and Ghostbusters, usually succeeded in being funny while maintaining a gentle and generous spirit made the gift even richer.
