So, doing a better job of saying no to things that are not truly in line with my goals.

 
TINA DUHAIME:  My name is Ann-Christine Duhaime. I am a pediatric neurosurgeon, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. My New Year’s Resolution would be to not give up on long-term goals, just because of short-term frustrations.
