Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done

Year after year, readers pulled me aside at events and said, “I’ve never had a problem starting. I’ve started a million things, but I never finish them. Why can’t I finish?According to studies, 92 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail. You’ve practically got a better shot at getting into Juilliard to become a ballerina than you do at finishing your goals. For years, I tho...

    I liked this! I think my biggest problem was that one of the goals he used as an example a lot was weight loss. I realize this is a very common goal, but still not something I want to hear about, so that turned me off a little. But I do think he had good tips. Like cutting your goal in half and maki...
