>It’s August. How many of you set goals for 2011? How are you doing on those goals? Did the New Year’s Resolutions fade from your mind by February? I find that this is a great time to take a look at what I wanted to accomplish this year and how am I doing? There is so much great energy for starting new things in September. Kids are back to school and adults seem to be on the same energetic schedule. So I invite you to take a look at where you are right now and where do you want to be by December.
Take a look at these questions and get moving on those goals for 2011. You still have lots of time left to reach them.
