Lindsay Ahmann's curator insight, January 11, 8:46 PM

I agree with this article 100%. I have the "all or nothing" and "go big or go home" mindset in my head every time I go down a race course. This is a big factor in mental strength but it also helps me do better. muscle memory is not always the way to go, you need to push yourself to become better and when you're under pressure, you're most likely going to go by muscle memory. I have learned that a little bit each day is a lot better than a lot in one day and then failing later. repitition and practice make perfect.

88 Simple New Year’s Resolutions that Sneakily Change Your Life

88 Simple New Year’s Resolutions that Sneakily Change Your Life | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

 

Don't you just hate New Year's Day?

Even if you consider yourself a mostly positive person, I can bet that a part of you secretly despises this time of the year and all the baggage it brings along.

I know I do.

Another year gone by with so little to show for.

Another new one starting with the same old list of stale goals and rusted dreams.

Who has the motivation to even consider starting something new, much less "resolving" to do it every day?

Does that mean you should give up making New Year’s resolutions all together?

Barb Jemmott's insight:

This list makes a great read. Happy New Year!
