4 reasons you’ve quit on your resolutions

A month or so ago, I talked about why I’m not setting goals in 2019. Instead I decided to work on a new habit every two weeks. I’m not anti-goal setting, I just wasn’t in the frame of mind to set goals this year. Maybe you did set goals or resolutions or intentions this year.…
