Goals vs. Habits?

Goals

There’s something about a calendar that causes people to set goals. In December, with the holidays on our minds and a new year afoot, millions of people vow to lose weight, save money or find the love of their life. Why does a date on a calendar cause such a renewed spirit? Why doesn’t May […]

Who’s Behind the Wheel of Your Mind?

Imagine your life as a spectacular journey. Your brain, with all it’s complexities has a driver and a passenger. A chimpanzee is driving. This chimpanzee is your emotional, animal self.

New Life Resolution

New Year's Resolution

Author’s Classroom
