Sometimes, you feel stuck. You have the feeling that you are not going further and that nothing can change in your life. How long does it take to change your life? Sometimes, it just takes a few seconds, the time to make one life-changing decision. Sometimes, this is the work of several years of strategic planning. When a new president gets elected, we all expect most of the major changes to happen in the first 100 days of the presidency. If a politician is able to change a country in this lapse of time, then you too are able to change your life in 100 days.

    Great post! I love to make lists. Every January, I try to make a list of new things that I want to try each year, or things I just want to get better at. Lists push me to be better because I obsess about being able to cross things off of them. Thanks for making me think about this in a different way. Great blog!

      Thanks for commenting! I love lists too but I noticed New Year’s lists are not working very well for me. I am mostly using a list of things to do in my life and monthly to-do lists. So I can remain flexible when I discover a new field I am interested in or when I find out that a goal is not realistic.

    Love it! Something to consider for last half of the year. I can’t see where to follow your blog. I am a learning ethusiastic like you and I agree that moms need lots of support and celebration for all the learning they do and facilitate for others. Thanks for liking my work on https://ennielifecoach.com
