Good morning Dinks and Happy Friday. We have a whole bunch of great posts for you today that are filled with New Year’s resolutions such as paying off your mortgage, buying a new car and giving to charity.
What is your New Year’s goal?
I find that two weeks is usually the amount of time it takes people to adjust to something and decide if they are going to stick with it – so are you sticking to your New Year’s resolutions?
Goals are one of my favourite things because I like having something to look forward to. I plan my year in January because I like to know what’s coming. Sometimes I pick up smaller goals throughout the year as I have new ideas or discover new things (usually vacations), but for the most part I know where I’m going and what I’m working towards at the beginning of each year.
