Come up with a Word of the Year
Ditch complicated New Year resolutions you can’t remember by February and embrace the way you want to feel all year round.
For example, my word for 2022 is OPEN.

Look Back at What's Working
Here’s another way to ditch New Year resolutions that don’t work... Why not perform a yearly review instead?

Make tweaks. Add an extra step. And continue to build your life (and dreams) brick by brick.
This approach feels way more realistic and empowering than far away goals. It’s all about creating lasting momentum and actionable plans.
