Easy way to become a better person!

Goal Habits.com

By sharing my New Year resolutions publicly, I am hopeful that I might be better able to stay on track and accomplish them all by year’s end.

Wishing Everyone a Prosperous, Healthful, and Joyful New Year!


Once a day, be kind to someone you have never been kind to before.
Once a week, help someone you have never helped before.
Once a month, learn something you had no interest in knowing before.
Once a year, become someone you have never been before.
—Paul Mark Sutherland 


Enjoy today.
Achieve today.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
