This article is right to the point. Never say never and remember that we are as important as promises we make to our kids in getting that special toy for Christmas. We tend to be nonchalant when it comes to eating and exercise but if we look at it as a food shopping list or saving for that cruise we want to go on; we will have much success. Always have a plan B and keep a journal. At the end of the week you'll be surprised with all that was accomplished.

This is a great article !!! Its a wonderful way of getting organized - and realizing - its ok if we have a booboo moment - and to not beat ourselves us because of it - but just keep trucking ! :o) Definitely putting it in my faves !
I teach eighth graders, and we have been focusing on setting goals this year. There are some excellent discussion points here that will provoke class discussions. Thanks!

This is a good article with a great message. I have a tendency to "Over-plan" and because of that I don't always complete my goals. If I follow this article I should be able to reach my goal for the month.
