The end of the year is drawing closer; in fact, it’s just over a week away! Remember the New Year’s resolutions you set last year?

We set these goals with the best intention to develop our repertoire of skills or to have a healthier lifestyle so that we can look back at the end of the year feeling content. However, more often than not it just doesn’t happen, so rather than feeling deflated this time next year, set yourself a more attainable goal.
