Monday Mojo – Lower the Bar

Do you set high standards for yourself? It’s not a bad thing. By setting a bar, we can push ourselves to set targets and reach our goals. But sometimes those standards can be so high we might feel like we’re failing every day. It might sound dramatic, but here’s how I know: Over the last …

Monday Mojo – Take One Step
