When I was younger, I would look around at all of the lazy people around me get uber excited about the year coming to an end…
They would inevitably start saying things like “new year, new me”…
… only to be in the same place the next year. Ha.
The highly successful, hell, even the moderately successful know that every month, day, and hour is a chance to restart and regain the traction in what’s important in their life.
They didn’t wait until the new year. They just did it.

Let’s be honest…

The episode you’re about to listen to includes a few snippets from recent recordings on mine, and a few other podcasts.
