It’s now the middle of February. Have you stuck to your New Year’s Resolution? Are you seeing the progress you wanted? Have you already given up? If you are like most Americans, you have either already stopped pursuing your New Year’s resolution or you are not pleased with your results thus far.
I encourage you at this time to sit down and reassess. Don’t change your resolution; rather you may need to modify your approach. When evaluating your New Year Resolution, determine how you can make it a New Life Resolution. If you are S.M.A.R.T. about your goals you can achieve them!
