The fresh start of a new year is the perfect time to make a change. Many have sat down and reflected on their lives, making promises to themselves of how to be better, but this year I am going against the grain and not setting traditional goals. 2013 is going to be a year of simplification, starting with my goals.

The following are two statements which I can be better about and I think if I can apply them to my life everything else will fall into place.
