I read a blog this week that really got me thinking. This one, by James Clear. Seems like a pretty cool idea, I thought. Because who does that? Who takes the time to step out of their life for a couple of hours, look at their values and what’s really important to them, and rate […]

You Can’t Have Willpower Without Self-Trust
