Life-Changing Resolutions A Year-Round Endeavor

Coach says scrap New Year's resolutions in favor of lasting change

DALLAS - As the year draws to a close, plenty of people will take stock of their lives and pledge to do things differently in the coming year, perhaps resolving to improve their marriages, quit smoking or lose weight.

In too many cases, those resolutions soon will end up on the junk heap of personal improvement, victims of little planning and poor execution. And the people making them will go right back to doing things the way they always did.

"If you're only thinking about making changes in your life in December, my question is, what are you doing the other months of the year?" says Mike McCurley, co-founder of Personal Enhancement Coaching, a company dedicated to helping people make improvements in their work, lifestyle, marriage and more. "It truly needs to be something that you're doing throughout the year."

McCurley has some advice for people who are interested in improving their lives, including the following:

Mike McCurley provides personal, executive, drug and alcohol, and marital enhancement coaching to clients looking to improve their lives through a rigorous process of self-examination, goal-setting, and accountability.
