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? I am hunting and pecking this right now. Another year, I vowed to take piano lessons; I didn't make it through January. Time and time again when I went for it alone, I'd get busy or just let it go. 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.

A year later, I was still going strong.

I have over 1,250 LinkedIn connections. Most people would consider me an active LinkedIn user. Still, I don't have the faintest idea what I'm doing on LinkedIn. In search of answers, I surveyed hundreds of fellow users.
The media has always played an essential role in shaping our opinions. Right now there is much too great a focus on the gender of -- rather than on the professional successes of -- power women.
