How excited do you think Pat Sajak is to ask contestants to buy a vowel after all these years? Do you think Beyoncé is tired of singing “Single Ladies” yet? Which do you think Michael Jordan loved more – the championship rings or shooting practice free throws for well over two decades of his life?

Even if you are in a great place professionally, if you implement a few of our suggestions, your great year can continue to evolve into something even greater.
