Episode 7 - New Year's Resolutions
In this episode of the Improvement Project Podcast, Sean & Dave discuss something that most people tend to find super difficult to maintain - New Year's Resolutions. We've all tried them and tried again after failing, and then tried again because very few people actually succeed. We've taken a slightly different approach on this episode by offering our opinion on the topic, instead of our advice. However, we do share some tips we've tried and some of them have worked, but will they work for you?
Questions We Faced Today
