High Leverage Habits for the New Year

Luckily, the human brain has the ability to eliminate thousands of those decisions through a very simple tool: habits.If you can become aware of your habits, then you'll be able to evaluate the ones that are serving you, the ones that are hurting you, and the ones that you should pick up.
