My first reaction is that this is an odd card for the beginning of the year. Yet if we see the ten as the culmination of Spring it makes more sense. While life seems like a clean slate now it will be very easy to allow projects to accumulate over the coming months so that they spill over into Summer. This reminds me of the need to set and maintain clear intentions for the Spring months.

3. Do it completely
4. Put space between things
