Fresh Start for a New Year

While it might seem cliche, the new year is a perfect opportunity to set goals both personally and professionally. This is due to something called the “Fresh Start Effect”. This idea might seem more intuitive than quantitative, the reality is that there is a lot of data behind the effectiveness of the Fresh Start Effect. Understanding how to harness the new year could be the difference between a good year and a great year.

In this episode, Michael Hyatt and Megan Hyatt Miller offer you four steps for making positive change happen in the new year. After that, Joel Miller speaks with author and economist, Dr. Katy Milkman, about the Fresh State Effect and how to use it in your leadership.
