new year resolution do not do list

What stops you from achieving your resolutions?

Maybe instead of making new year resolutions, we should make a list of the things that prevent us from getting things done. Remove the obstacles. Take your current resolutions, and transform them into a new list of “don’t do this, don’t do that.” I’ll take my 12 resolutions for 2020 and transform them using the […]

2020 new year resolutions

Do you have any resolutions for this new year? I don’t really specifically set out to find new resolutions at the start of the year. I much rather just start new habits any time of the year. But in effort to capture some of the habits I’d like to be doing more, here’s my list […]
