Evaluating your life now. Turn it into a day. Sounds ominous and pretty heavy for a Tuesday, but it’s a kick start on those New Year’s Resolutions. It’s nothing to worry about really; it’s just a day to take the opportunity to reflect one’s life. Simple.

It’s a challenge that I love to do every day. So here are some of the books that I have read that really helped me jump start evaluate my life:
