100 Ways to Make 2018 the Best Year Ever

I decided a few months ago that 2018 is going to be different. There isn’t going to be one big goal to accomplish. Some huge idea that is seems great on paper, but with no real plan to actually pull it off. I made up my mind that I am going to make 2018 the best year ever.

I’m sure you’ve done the same thing I have. January comes around and you jump on the bandwagon to make some outrageous  resolutions for the new year.

There is nothing wrong with these big resolutions. The problem is, without following though with a plan, how do we actually expect to be able to make them happen?

That’s why instead of making one big resolution. I decided it would be better for me to make a TON of resolutions.

Just small things, that don’t feel overwhelming, but small things that really matter!

I think if you tried to do all the things on this list you really could make 2018 the best year ever. I sincerely believe that we are capable of far more than we give ourselves credit for.

Make 2018 the best year ever with these 100 simple daily new years resolutions.
