My name is Austin Bollinger and my mission is to help you ditch your New Year’s Resolutions and, instead, help you crush your goals every single day, and all year long.
But before I dive into my story and why I started Daily New Year’s, I want to take a second to tell you a little bit about myself.
Currently, I’m the Vice President of Strategic Development at a Digital Marketing and Video Production Agency in Cape Girardeau, Missouri called Creative Edge. I went to college for a degree in graphic design and photography but fell in love with video production soon after.
From there, I’ve cycled my way through various skills, jobs, passions, and so on. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been an ambitious, driven, and self-motivated person, but for most of my life, I struggled with clarity and focus.
For a long time, I didn’t have clear, long-term goals for my life. I’m not even sure I ever practiced regular goal setting. Sure, every year I would set a New Year’s Resolution, and I might have a random, fitness goal in mind, but nothing ever too meaningful or future-focused.
As I was listening to a podcast, resting for another lift, a thought hit me like a bolt of lightning! What if more people set goals every month, every week, or every day? What if we could channel the energy of New Years into each and every day?
No sooner than the idea jumped into my head, a name and mission followed: Daily New Year’s, a blog about starting new things and striving for continual improvement all year long.
I raced home a wrote it down in my journal.
Daily New Year’s was born!
Since starting Daily New Year’s in 2017, my love for goal setting, writing, and sharing what I’ve learned has grown beyond belief. Because of that growth, I took a reluctant break from blogging in 2019 to write my very first book, Crush Your Goals!
Crush Your Goals! is the first and last book you’ll ever need for living the success-driven life you’ve been dreaming of. The book includes four comprehensive sections, from getting started with goal setting to dealing with difficulties, and everything in between; step-by-step, easy-to-implement strategies for setting successful goals all year long—no more abandoned resolutions; and 29 guided, goal setting worksheets and self-assessments for maximizing your growth and performance.
I’m excited to announce that the book dropped on February 11th, 2020. It’s time to trade your old, tired Resolutions for an exciting goal setting strategy that gets real results.
