Ten Ways to Beat Procrastination and Achieve New Year’s Resolutions
Good Intentions Are Not Good Enough
2010 is here and the opportunity for a new start. How many times have you told yourself ‘This year I am going to start exercising, earn more money, be a better parent, reduce spending, improve effectiveness on the job, quit procrastinating, and achieve some meaningful goals’?

Are you frustrated with the results that you are getting? Would you like to do something about it? What we do in life is determined by how we communicate with ourselves and others.

In turn, they are not hearing the message you are sending. Not a good strategy in a personal or business relationship.
