… that today is New Year’s Day? The first day of the New Year, following both the Gregorian and Julian calendars, is often marked by fireworks, parades, and gym membership signups ;-). It’s a new blank page – fill it with good thoughts and deeds!


Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

Do you remember January 1st, 2010? I can’t believe that was a decade ago. The start of a decade is a rare and special opportunity. Let’s seize it together.

A brand new decade gives us an incredible chance to learn from the past 10 years, then prepare and take control over the next 10 years. I want you to ask yourself 3 big questions:

  1. Are you happier?
  2. Are you where you want to be?
  3. Where do you want to be a decade from now?

In the last 10 years, what have you done? What have you learned? Who have you become?

Tomorrow I am teaching a live goal setting class. My goal is to set you up right for the next decade.

New Decade, New You

January 2nd, 11am PST


Make 2020 your best year yet with this science-based, goal-setting class. I will teach you:

  • How to identify the things in your life that are holding you back
  • How to activate your potential with a 10-year plan
  • How to effectively set boundaries
  • How to confidently take control of your path to success

A personal note – the goal-setting framework I teach you in this class is the actual goal setting framework I use every single year. On January 1st, 2010, Science of People was in its infancy; my big goal in 2010 was to launch the blog! Since then, we have published over 500 articles, had over 22 million visitors, and we’re still growing! If you start doing this framework with me now, we can do it together every year.

Let’s tackle this decade together!

To your success,


PS- People School 2020 will open tomorrow after class! Get ready for a whole new world of opportunities coming your way.

As with Crazy Rich AsiansThe Farewell’s performance in China has been a subject of interest because it betrays a widely-held assumption in the industry—that a film which features Chinese dialogue and/or is set in China ought to enjoy some amount of home-turf advantage.

Whether it’s a feel-good rom-com or arthouse indie flick, films that feature immigrant narratives in fact have a uniquely hard time winning the approval of audiences from countries where the immigrants are from.
