As we’re approaching the final quarter of the year, it could be a good time to take stock of how last year’s New Year’s Resolutions shook out for you. Or, if you didn’t make any then, you could make some now to close the year out strong. In fact, I think the reason people make New Year’s Resolutions is because, around this time of year, it dawns on them to maybe make this or that improvement but they think, “Meh—it’s almost the New Year. May as well wait.” But then you enter the New Year actually feeling guilty. I know I have a list of things I’ve been trying to get better at this year, from personal, self-reflection goals to how I interact with others. My success ebbs and flows but I’d really like to close out 2018 feeling (mostly) proud of who I am. Here are some self-improvement goals to close out the end of the year strong.
