Valentine’s Day. Mid Life Celebration. Sunday, February 14, 2010.
Today’s thought is a simple one.
Click here to read the six steps from an Everyday Health article.
Or, simply read my list that says the same thing, just differently:
- Make your goal impossible
- Start small, I mean seriously small

How did you do with the one(s) you made in 2009?
If you are curious enough or smart enough to pay attention, you can learn a lot from what I share. But like anything where excellence is a goal, the focus has to be constant.
Not everyone can keep up. That’s just the law of nature. There’s only a certain type that has that focus and discipline. What type are you?
Looking back to my 2009 resolution to start an Internet-based business, here are some numbers, mostly for posterity (and certainly not to boast):
