In my post on How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions, I briefly touched on how progress will rarely be linear when you are trying to reach your goals. This goes for just about anything that you are trying to accomplish, whether it’s building a business, learning a new skill, or trying to make a positive change to your body through… Continue reading
The new year has arrived, a time when many people make New Year’s resolutions to improve their lives.
