Since it's New Year's, start with your New Year's resolutions. Grab your resolutions list. If you've already burned it in a fit of secret rebellion, rewrite it. For each resolution, choose your measurements. Then grab your friend and start reaching your goals! Make your meetings short, make them simple, make them steady, and you'll be successful. So says Stever. 

In future episodes, we'll explore other ways to beat procrastination. If you want to learn more about Marshall and his many excellent coaching tips, the website has a link to a 20-minute interview where he shares two different "buddy coaching" techniques for improving performance.
