How to make this your most awesome year yet

Around this time each year, we commonly hear people making New Year’s Resolutions. The beginning of a new year can be a great time to start fresh and improve areas of your life.

But resolutions are often half-baked pledges that revolve around small ideas. People make resolutions because the pledge itself is easy to say and creates a false sense of productivity. Too often we make these resolutions without taking a deeper look at the bigger picture of what we really want our lives to look like. This is why so many New Year’s Resolutions tend to fall flat by about February. 

So this New Year’s, ditch the resolutions. Instead, design your life.
