Today I'm going to do the work for you and summarise 5 professor's number 1 findings of what makes success so you know the science behind it.

So I don't know about you, but I'm starting to think about 2023 and what I should be doing, and it feels like 2022 just came and went and I didn't get through a fraction of the goals that I'd set my self.

And when I chat to many of you, it seems like we're all dealing with this problem, at a time when The World Out There tells us we should be NAILING life if we just do this one thing.

And that makes me feel guilty... like goodness people if it was that simple, I'd be a rockstar!!!!
