Needles from the Haystack #15 – 01/2019

I’m not a fan of making personal changes just because a digit in the date rolls forward. But it’s as good as any other day to start developing more into who, what and how you want to be.

So I made this first newsletter of 2019 about self-development only. These are 5 of my all-time favorites from this realm.

If you read through the first 4, you will have plenty of ideas what your focus for 2019 could be. And whatever you decide to do, the classic video at the end will push you through.

At least that’s what I hope. Staying focused on a goal and muscling through with consistent action is hard. But doable for everyone!

If you want to know how, just ask me or watch out for future editions of this newsletter 🙂

All the Best for 2019, may all your good wishes become reality!
