31 Days to Your Goal | lifeyourway.net

New Year’s resolutions often get a bad rap because we traditionally set lofty, unrealistic goals for ourselves — as if we will suddenly become a new person just because the calendar turned a page — but goal-setting is actually a really important practice that allows you to make slow and steady progress toward improving your life and achieving your dreams.

We’re hosting this series on the work channel only because that’s where we talk about personal growth most often, but it’s for anyone who has any type of goal: Whether you want to run a marathon, yell less, read more books in 2013, start a new business or take your blog to the next level (or any of a million other possible goals), I hope you’ll join us for the next 31 days to make actual, real progress toward your goal:
