I’ve never been one to make New Years resolutions. They’ve always seemed pointless to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for personal growth, goal setting and developing healthy habits, I just don’t believe making a list and attacking them all at once on January 1 is the best solution.

I previously explained how I began my journey to lead a more intentional life, how I started letting go of my possessions, and taking a closer look at the things that truly bring me joy.

How often do we get wrapped up in planning the perfect workout plan, diet, organizational system, or whatever your thing is. We get lost in preparation, and we never actually start. Or we spend so much time finding the perfect system that when it’s time to get started we realize we’ve set a completely unattainable goal. The key is to start with small, attainable goals, and work your way up.
