…set, GO

This is for those who have committed to the 3Bs theme for 2013.

Desire is not enough, The desire to live the "3Bs" must go beyond desire to S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Time Based) goals.

The Relationships-Do-Matter, 2013 theme of living "BOLDER, BIGGER & BETTER" is more than cliche and corny words but a deliberate agenda to make a difference. I hope you resolve to live out your dreams this year with the same diligent attention you apply to the things that matter most to you; life, love and relationships.

It’s a fact, everyone grows but not everyone grows intentionally, purposefully and strategically. So I challenge you to be INTENTIONAL about achieving the 3Bs in 2013.

You are ready, you can do it and I look forward to a BOLDER, BIGGER and BETTER you in 2013.
The handbook below was shared by a friend and I found these nuggets insightful, easily digestible, select a few and apply them on your 2013 journey, Do let me know what you think.
