2013 is just around the corner. It’s that exciting time of year again. To reflect over 2012 and plan for the new year. In hindsight, how was your 2012? Did you take charge and achieve all goals you’ve set for this year? If you are like most people, let me be honest – you’ve probably failed . In fact, neuroscience shows that 88% of New Year’s Resolutions fail. The reason for such failure stems from multiple factors but one of them being the sheer disconnect with the short-term and long-term. That is, the yearly goals we set in the beginning of the year cannot stand alone. It needs to be integrated into something bigger – your life-long goal.
