We often start the new year full of good intention and ample ambition: to be better, by whatever means that may be. Eating healthy? Cook at home. Get in shape? Exercise every day. Save money? Spend less. When we make set priorities for ourselves, the end goal seems so clear and the path feels so direct. Yet two to three weeks into the year, we often find a bit of fatigue when looking at our goals, or worse, we feel angst and stress as other projects take respectable priority.
