Yes, it’s that time of year again when people are running around for the holidays and already starting to dread New Year’s because that means resolutions…that many of us just don’t keep.

You all have heard me talk about this before – goal setting: setting attention to a goal (WHY?), thinking about the effort you need to achieve the goal (WHAT?) and measuring small successes along the way (HOW?). But in order to even wrap our heads around setting new goals, it is really, really important to think about and acknowledge all of our accomplishments so far in life.

In this week’s episode, I share some of my own struggles and give you a challenge that has worked for me – and hundreds of others – over time.

So, take a few moments and think about – what have you accomplished today, this week, this month, this year…you get the point. And they can be big or small but they are to be celebrated nonetheless. Too many of us go through our days blindly, meaning we do something and we come to either expect it or just not appreciate our contribution.

Make a change – today – acknowledge and celebrate the road you have traveled!

And don’t forget to start and end every day with a SMILE!
