Eat better, stress less, move more—whatever your New Year’s resolutions or goals are this year, you need practical steps and tools to help you achieve them.
Often resolutions fail because they’re too big, vague, or restrictive and we don’t have a clear strategy for how we’re going to reach them. But when armed with the right knowledge, skills, and plan there is no limit to the goals you can score. (See also: 3 Reasons You Should Set Goals, Not Resolutions)
We have five books that will provide the insights, strategies, and tools you need to reach your goals. Make your resolutions last with these smart books.
