From Box Checker to Character Builder
Webster’s Dictionary defines resolution this way. Resolution: A firm decision to do or not do something.
For most of my life I loved resolution making. I loved making my list in my journal and then working toward checking off all of those boxes but as my bent toward perfectionism and striving fell away my love of resolutions faded.

This week I would ask that you focus on making your have, do, & be list. Leave no thought un-written. You will want to get even the most fleeting or what seems “crazy” thoughts down. This paradigm shift has been a pivotal part of my journey and I am really excited to share it for the first time.
In addition, to the weekly Tips & Tricks posts I have a No Resolution Revolution private Facebook group. If you would like a place to dig deeper and have accountability this will be a place where you will get daily prompts and feedback on all the exercises we do as part of the No Resolution Revolution. It will be a small group of no more than 10 and you can register here. I would love the honor of walking with your further in this process.
