This Thing is Everything – New Life Resolutions Pt 8


At the start of every year, I publish a post in the New Life Resolutions series… Its one of the most important posts of any year. I have done this for the past 7 years and the idea behind the series was born out of a response to (and as an alternative for) New Year Resolutions. I just knew there had to be a better way to think about that.
I like how I penned it down in Part 3: The Paradigm Shift on Resolutions

“If it is really worth fighting to change that thing this year,

He revs the engine and it answers … He can see the finish line and can picture himself dashing across that line in top speed.

Why your Relationship and Life decisions are so difficult and how to make them easier

We’ve all been there. Stuck at the crossroads of an important decision and can’t seem to make a decision.  We have considered everything worth considering and yet there we are, standing at the intersection of LEFT and RIGHT. Stuck in the paralysis of analysis…not moving backwards but not moving forward either.
