Our AIX Admissions Dream Maker, Sally Halder, shared this New Years Resolution Wellness today that I had to pass on! As many of us have learned from Brad Van Dyke, our Director of Education, in his “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” Master Series, setting goals for ourselves is key to the second habit: beginning with the end in mind. Why I like this wellness that Sally shared so much, is because it breaks large resolutions down into 12 short-term goals, which may eventfully become habit. I also love the idea of setting and sharing these goals with my friends for accountability, support, and group celebration. So, will you be in my “resolution of the month club?” 🙂
Happy New Year!
