1. Why You Should Bet on Your Strengths – Tiny Leaps, Big Changes
When was the last time you stopped and thought, “What is it that I am really great at?” This episode of Gregg Clunis’ Tiny Leaps, Big Changes explores how we can leverage our strengths and focus more time leaning on them to create real impacts. Can we worry less about our shortcomings and discover where we can really add value?
Though we’re not about to ignore our weaknesses any time soon, putting more into our strengths and less into self-criticism could be an interesting way to re-frame to our everyday thinking and how we work towards our successes. Episode Link

3. You Say You Want a Resolution (Willpower) – Where There’s Smoke
Once you’re clear on what matters to you and why you want to achieve the goals and resolutions you’ve put forth, Brett Gajda’s episode of Where There’s Smoke focuses on how to get there. When it comes to training willpower, he suggests the “magical cure” for lack of willpower is physical exercise!
In order to have more willpower to exercise, first we have to exercise. Our ability to resist temptation and stick with a commitment depends on not just what’s happening in our brains but in our entire bodies. Exercise is the connection to increasing brainpower AND willpower necessary for achieving our goals. Episode Link
