If you have not yet set your goals, it is not too late. You can set your goals at any time.

  • Relationships & Society
  • Body & Wellness

  • Creativity & Learning

How to infuse your desired feelings into achieving your goals

Let me give you an example from my resolutions. I have a goal of exercising 30 or more minutes five days a week. Most days this means that I take a walk.


Lose weight. Exercise more. Spend less money, save more. Get a new job. Get organized. Do something more like reading or travel.
