Make This Year the Best Year of Your Life

Make This Year the Best Year of Your Life

What does it mean to make a given year the best year of your life?

I believe it's about three things:

  • making progress toward what truly matters
  • maintaining a balanced life
  • enjoying each day on its own merit.

In this post, I'll share three simple methods to help you achieve these goals.

Whether you're starting your year or smack in the middle of it, these methods are timeless and actionable.
