Now is a time to pause, reflect, consider the year that has passed – one the likes of which we have not seen in our lifetime – and look ahead to what lies before us. Take time to rest, to settle your mind after a busy and perhaps difficult time. Refresh and emerge ready to take on what comes next. Find your opportunities for 2021 and get those applications rolling. This year is water under the bridge, but there is open ocean ahead.
