These are the gems of 2009 welcome posts from all the blogs I read...
1. The best post is from Rajesh Setty's Life Beyond Code blog about the 'let go list ' which is a list of things which hold us back from dong the right things. Do have a look at it and realise what are stopping you.
2. Next is Tom Ferris on his learnings from 2008.
3. Seth Godin has a post on the useless and hypocritic merriment at the end of an year also urging us to lead
4. The next post is by Fred Wilson on AVC about his wishes for 2009. Though they relate to US in particular, they are worth looking at.
