You know, the problem with new year's resolutions is that people don't check up on their resolutions until one year later. And actually, I'm thinking about that, I don't even think they even check up on them. They just set some resolutions every year. And then it dwindles away, and they forget about it. There's an amazing phenomenon that researchers have discovered. And that is anything that you start paying attention to and start measuring, that thing will improve just because you're measuring it. So look at your past year, have you been measuring what you've done, if you truly want to improve, you want to do amazing things in your life, you have to start paying attention and start

You might be asking though, why am I being so anal about this? Why don't you just go with the flow? Why don't you just live your life. And the problem with that is if you just go with the flow, you're never going to achieve excellence. You're just going to let life pass you by and life carry you down. And unless you're measuring that which matters to you, it's not going to improve and it's not going to become excellent. So the bottom line is this. If you want excellence in your life, you need to start

measuring that which matters to you. This is Muhammad Sharif Acetamide ACHEMA
