It’s A Whole New Decade – 30 Day Blog Challenge
Maybe it’s because I turn 40 this year. Maybe it’s because 2020 just has a certain ring to it. Maybe I’m just like every other person out there and I like the idea of starting fresh. Maybe I will lose my momentum in 4 to 6 weeks and forget about my goals altogether.
Only Time Will Tell.
Anyone who knows me even a little knows that I get obsessed. I don’t have interests. I have obsessions. And my greatest affair is with communicating to achieve goals.
Communication Rocks. (And not just for nerds.)

You don’t even have to blog every day. Journal two times a week, or once a week. As long as you set a goal and pick a topic and stick to it, you can succeed.
New Goals for January
It’s nice to set lofty goals at the beginning of the year. It gives us a sense of accomplishments to envision a year living life in a new more desirable way. But the problem with these lengthy targets is that we rarely see it through to the end.
One Month Is A Sweet Spot
Some people (people smarter than me) say that doing something new for 30 days creates a new habit. So, instead of staring add an enormous 365-day calendar and wondering how you’ll make it to the end, just conquer the next 30 days with me.
Smaller is Doable
So I guess that’s my first goal-setting gem. Let’s call it Rule One:
