9 Ways to Level Up in 2020

As we are about to begin a new decade, many of us are starting to make plans and goals we want to achieve for the new year.

But personally, I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, because statistics show that around 90% of New Year’s resolutions are broken by the end of January.

Instead, I like looking back at the previous year and critically evaluate what I did right or wrong and think about what I need to do differently to continue to grow.

In today’s episode, I share ideas and tips on how to make 2020 your best year yet. I discuss why you should focus on one training goal for the first quarter of the year and emphasize the importance of sleep and how it can impact your health and performance toward your goals.

I also talk about how seeking a mentor or coach can help you achieve your plans faster. And last but not least, we talk about why you should meditate and how you can turn it into a daily habit.


It’s this healthy balance that you need to strike: celebrating your growth over the past year and knowing that you have to continue your growth over the next. – Mike Robertson
