It’s the new year and the “new you”, right? 2023 is the year of change….again. Just like 2022
was, and before that 2021, and before that 2020.
Let me guess… you took inventory of your health, wealth, career, and possibly other parts of your life and decided to change.
January 1st rolled around and you were excited and this year was going to be different. January ended up
being a month of some successes and you’re feeling pretty good about yourself.
February hits and you don’t get to the gym as much, work isn’t as interesting, and you’re starting to feel

In my line of work, I am confronted daily with clients or potential clients that use a sentence that
includes the word “but”. This is a word that sets off about a million red flags in my brain.
“But” is a coordinating conjunction used to connect ideas that contrast. Importance on “ideas that
contrast”. For example…I was going to go to the gym, BUT, I had to work late and I was tired

early and walk, BUT, I had a long night (definition…I skipped my workout).
BUTS give a person some sort of justification that provides them an out. The biggest difference
between those who do and those who don’t is personal accountability.
Over the next several weeks, I want to help you attain a sense of accomplishment by accountability and what is
necessary to make 2023 the best year of your life!
