New Year's Resolution? Get a Little Help From Your Friends

We've all had New Year's resolutions that we've broken. One year, I resolved to learn how to touch-type instead of hunting and pecking for each key. How'd that turn out?

But the resolution I kept? Two years ago, I was with my childhood girlfriends for New Year's Eve and said I wanted to keep a journal of the milestones in my children's lives. One of them suggested that I share some of it with them every month. They held me accountable, cheering me on when I sent entries and reminding me when I fell behind. A year later, I was still going strong.

I have a suggestion for Sandberg and all the Lean In teams out there. Think broadly about populating your circles -- especially regarding age. Fill the seats around the table with fresh perspectives and with viewpoints from women who have been standing up for decades.
