With Christmas in the rear view mirror, and New Year's just up ahead, it's the perfect time to reflect on the year gone by, and thank everyone in the HuffPost community for helping make 2013 such a record-shattering year for us. Last month, HuffPost attracted 94 million unique visitors, with nearly 45 percent of that traffic coming from our eight international editions (with Brazil and Korea joining the fold in the next two months). HuffPost Live continues to make news and attract views -- nearly 110 million in November, and over 750 million since it launched. And our Third Metric initiative -- devoted to redefining success beyond money and power to include well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving -- has taken off across the globe in a remarkable way. Clearly 2013 was a year in which many of us felt the need to bring more mindfulness into our lives and reconnect with what really matters -- a perfect New Year's resolution for 2014.

The trick, I have learned, is to focus on one keystone habit. A keystone habit is one that is central to the way you have been operating and once changed will create a chain reaction of change.
