With each new year comes new personal goals. As January gets rolling, so do many of our annual resolutions to improve our lives and the world around us. But what happens midyear? How are you doing with your goals for 2021?

Did you add to your plans or dream up a new idea? Have some proven to be better set aside for now? How about marking them off the list – have some gotten a big check mark of completion already? We want you to join the conversation in our exclusive members only Link community.

Mind – Are you working through your reading list? Nathalie Perez (Florida International University) plans to reach her goal of reading 12 books this year by completing one each month.
