What the world needs now is NOT another new post on how-to make, execute or keep New Year’s resolutions – ‘cause I have five in the Build Your Dream archive. Old advice is good wisdom. And personally, I’m glad I took a gander at these posts, because I’m resurrecting three resolutions from 2015 again for 2019:

  1. Embrace optimism.
  2. Stop overlooking what’s right.
  3. Be your own change agent — starting today, no excuses.

And you can find my prior #BYDN musings on new year’s resolutions here:

  1. You Say Resolution (or Habit or Intention) I Say…
  2. Keep Those Annual Resolutions By Adding Community
  3. Sorry, Your New Year’s Resolution Really Was to Network
  4. New Year’s Networking Resolutions
  5. New Year’s Resolutions
