Making a Change in Your Life
When we were kids our parents told us how to act, what to eat, even when to do our homework. But as we start taking charge of our own lives, many of us decide to make changes — stuff like eating right, being more environmentally conscious, or doing better in a sport.
If you're like most people, the easy part is knowing what change you want to make. The challenge is figuring out how to get there and sticking with it.
That's why we've created this feature. It helps make goals easier to reach by breaking them down into manageable steps. After using this tool to develop and plan a goal, you can print out your own goal sheet to guide and inspire you. We also provide examples of how other people reached their goals — they did it, and we know you can too!
