So the stats on New Years Resolutions are not great. Forbes magazine reported that about 92% of people don't achieve their New Years Resolutions.... so why are we so crazy about making them?
This year I'm saying F#@% I mean Forget New Year Resolutions and focus on what you want more of in 2017. I can hear the naysayers telling me that it's not specific or measurable or in the vein of the KISS (keep it simple stupid) method that helps people achieve their goals. To which I say, you are correct but I think I have a better chance of achieving even part of a list of things I want more of than a single measurable New Years Resolution...so why not try something different.
So what I'm proposing is not setting a goal but rather setting some intent to bring more of some things into your life. Here's the beginning of my ongoing list...you catch the continuation over on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter Page.
In 2017, I want more
