Do You Really Want To Succeed? You Need To Ditch Some Goals

Goal setting is good.

Working hard to achieve them is even better. But perhaps you need to take a short break and ask yourself if whatever it is you are working so hard on is actually what you want.

Why You Should Actually Ditch Some of Your 2016 Goals

And, sometimes, to figure out what that is, the best thing to do is let go of old goals that simply aren’t serving you anymore.
