New Years Goals 2019

For example, instead of saying “get in shape” or “exercise more,” setting a specific goal like “go for a walk every Monday after work,” or “run in a race each month,” is actually something you can track. I also believe you should set goals that build on goals from the year before. Continue reading “New Years Goals 2019”
