Are You Always Busy, But Not Getting Anything Done?

This Week's Simple Tip Each year for my birthday, I reflect on my life and decide what changes, if any, I want to make emotionally, spiritually, financially, socially, mentally and physically. Like all humans, I am a creature of habit and while driven, have difficulty incorporating new changes into my routine. One of my biggest challenges is when I can't SEE my progress.
