In this episode… (0:23) The theme of this episode is: Are You Ready. It's all about how you get into 2019. One of the interesting things about 2019 and New Year’s, in particular, is that 92% of New Year’s resolutions fail. They don't fail because they're stupid ideas or for a lack of trying. As Mark thinks about the topic of "Are You Ready", he breaks this concept down into 3 key factors: 1) Taking inventory of the past, 2) Plan and 3) Launch. The likelihood of success is going to be so much greater if you can accomplish these 3 things. "If you don’t act fast, you’re not going to come out of the gate as strong.” - Mark G.
