Could you use some structure to your goals and your decisions? Me too!

I have been thinking about writing a Rule of Life in place of annual goal setting (or as a companion to it), and I was first introduced to it in a book by Peter Scazzero. He explains that a Rule of Life is like a trellis on which we train a vine to grow. Having a framework in place helps us to direct how we grow and ultimately helps us flourish.

In the latest episode and article on Life, Repurposed, I explore what it is and how it can help you create your own Rule of Life.
