Organised: Can you stick to new year’s resolutions?

We’ve just entered a new year, and hopefully new beginnings after we’ve had a pretty abysmal 2020. And with new year’s come the dreaded resolutions, which apparently 43% of Brits would have only kept for one month according to a 2015 ComRes poll.

So how do we stay organised and on top of things in order to be productive enough to carry out our goals?

Thanks to the following guests for participating:
