If someone were to ask you to pick between having a snack next week of a carrot or a piece of cake, what would you pick? Some would consider the health benefits of eating a vegetable versus eating a dessert. You might think about your New Year’s goals and how your decision would impact your resolutions. Would you answer differently if the same person came to you with a carrot in one hand and a piece of cake in the other and asked you to choose in the moment?

It is easier to pick between a carrot over the cake when you have a plan. Think of all the decisions you make that go against your goals on a daily basis.
