Best-selling author Gretchen Rubin who studies human happiness and habits has a project you may want to try: make 18 smaller, realistic goals for the year instead of big ones you’re less likely to stick with.

To get us started, Gretchen shared a few of hers:

– Fix my phone headset, which keeps running out of battery
– Set up a home studio for my Facebook show ‘Ask Gretchen Rubin Live’ with better lighting
– Clean out my massive canvas tote bag collection

I shall steal #3. Why am I obsessed with bags?

Many shares on social media here to inspire us:
