13 Questions That Eliminate Clutter and Create Clarity
New Year’s is just another day with a sunrise and sunset.
The way we think about New Year’s is what makes it different.
New Year’s is a finish and starting line all at once. You reflect on life, release disappointments, and embrace aspirations.
New Year’s isn’t effective because it’s only once a year.
Remarkable success requires starting again, again.
Practice New Year’s everyday.
Establish a structured time to process your day, everyday. The operative word is “structured.” Don’t just randomly mull over things.
Establish a system that allows you to cross a line – everyday – where you reflect, let go, and start again.
Unexamined life collects clutter. Baggage expands. Confusion prevails.
