It is time to forget new years resolution that you don’t even stick to anyway and use September as the month to kick start positive changes and new routines.

It’s hard to imagine life before the digital age. What if you had to get through a day without the help of the internet? What about going on a road trip without Google Maps? Or buying a gift without the use of Amazon? That all probably sounds nearly impossible these days.

As we are well on the way into the 4th quarter of the year, I have always said I like my goals to be set in September. I just do not feel January is a realistic time to say you are going to do this, that and the other.

That being said, how do you set goals and stay focused as we head towards the end of 2020?
