Looking back on 2021 is a fun way to reminisce, but a better strategy would be to see what worked for you and build on those for 2022. And if nothing did, make new goals to work on. The great thing about a new year is they always feel like a chance to get a fresh start, a time to do better, a time to ask yourself, “Is this where I want to be?” Check out my post on this topic, “2022: Where am I going?” on MGSpear.com.

Slow Burn Quality

At the end of the day when it comes down to it, people go for quality. Sometimes getting this quality takes a while, but someday, after a possible slow buildup, that quality will be recognized.
