Top 10: Looking Back and Looking Ahead
As 2012 draws to a close, we look ahead, anticipating a brand new year. What will be the Top 10 big new things in 2013? It’s hard to know; but here’s what they are predicting on Mashable … in a post by Lance Ulanoff titled “11 Big Tech Trends You’ll See in 2013“. For what they are worth, you’ll see more and more of these Top 10 predictions as we move toward January 1 and the turning of the year.
But what we can absolutely know now (and what’s helpful to take a look at) is what we found useful in 2012. Knowing what you explored, what you tried, what worked and what didn’t in the past year helps you plan how to move ahead. Not only that, but taking a look at top ideas and innovations can help spark your own creativity.
