- Link to the free Mel Robbins course "Simple Steps to an Incredible Year" which we are using to both set up positive goal setting behaviours and glean our motivational values and quotes for our personal manifesto. We're doing this on my login, but it's free for anyone to sign up, and you have lifetime access.
- This course is in 4 modules, we will take approximately 3 cycles to complete it, two periods per cycle. After we answer all the questions, we work on our values and value statements, as well as our motivational mottos based on that series of questions. The PDFs of the questions are here:
