OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s been over a month since people across the country made their New Year’s resolutions, but it’s also around the time that many people stop accomplishing their goals.

  • Goals should be personally meaningful
  • Breaking goals into smaller milestones will help you see progress
  • Communicating goals to others increases the likelihood that you will achieve them
