Everyone knows the saying "Rome wasn't built in a day." And everyone knows it means that important work takes time. But do you know the second, lesser known part of that quote? It continues, "...but they were laying bricks every hour." Rarely is anything an overnight success.
There is so much focus this time of year on setting new goals and on making resolutions.

Setting any goal, no matter the size, requires thought, planning and a way to measure your progress. But, prior to those steps, you must also be in the proper mental state to set and actually carry-out your goal.
