Matt & Kyle - New Years Resolutions And The Power Of Your Inner Circle




“I set myself up for success by picking what I’m the worst at and having 1% improvement per day.” 

Podcast Synopsis

During New Year’s Eve, I met up with two of my close friends, Matt Lawson and Kyle Herron, to talk about New Year’s resolutions and setting goals for yourself. Matt and Kyle are the type of people that everyone should have in their close circle of friends. They are the ones I train with, read books with, and we give each other constant support, and motivation.

Matt and Kyle are avid goal setters at the beginning of the year. Matt describes that on New Year’s Eve, he and his family sit at the table together, and write down their goals for the year ahead. As a family, they talk about the resolutions they have for themselves, and for everyone else. We all thought creating a Dream Board is a good idea, especially for families. To make a Dream Board, have a poster board, and a bunch of magazines. Think of places you want to go, or any goals you have for this year. With that in mind, cut out any pictures, or words, in those magazines that match your ideas. Glue or tape on your cut-outs to the poster board, and you have a Dream Board. If you make a Dream Board for your family, hang it up in the garage, or near the front door, where everyone can see it every day. If you make your own Dream Board, maybe hang it up in the closet or bathroom.

Through the rest of our get together, we talk about daily habits, journal writing, and how to reach your goals for the rest of the year. If you have a big resolution for this year, start out with a small goal, and work your way up to your biggest goal. In the podcast, Matt, Kyle, and I break it down on how to make this year your best year yet.

See you on the water,
