Resolutions with Staying Power with Kathryn McGlynn

February 15, 2018, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. | Murray Room, Yawkey Athletic Center

Many of us start projects or new endeavors with strong intentions and high hopes, only to have them dwindle along the way. Some of us do not even make New Year resolutions any more.  In this session, you will: explore why resolutions fail, identify five important components of a good resolution, learn how to put the power back into your resolution and harness it for use each and every day. Apply this new concept of "resolution" to any new endeavor, whether it is a work project or personal goal or, yes, even the start of a new year.
