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.

Who am I?

I’m a husband to my high school sweetheart, Callie (12 years strong), doggy dad, proud uncle (5 nephews and 1 niece), weightlifter, beer lover, and lifetime learner. I love spending time with my wife and my dogs, generating content for Daily New Year’s, and guest writing for Lifehack and Addicted2Success.

I’m obsessed with goal setting, but as you’ll see, it wasn’t always that way.

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.

Sometime in early 2017, I got tired of postponing my self-improvement. I got tired of waiting to set one huge goal on January 1st, only to quit less than 45 days later.

Something finally clicked! I began writing my goals down, started consuming personal development content, and I was building a daily routine around my goals.

One Fall morning in October I was following my usual routine: wake up at 4:45, head off to the gym, tune into a podcast, and hit the weights. I was training for the 1,250lb club, and my goal was to pass the test by Christmas.

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 that Fall day in 2017, I have been pursuing my goals with passionate energy. I’ve been pouring everything I have into this blog, I’ve been building a community, learning how to podcast, and so much more!

I’m not perfect – at all! I love talking about goals setting, personal development, motivation, and more, but I make mistakes and sometimes I struggle to take my own advice, but I’m working to become Better Every Day.

I warmly invite you to do the same. We can all become better every day by taking action towards our goals and building momentum towards our dreams. All it takes is one action.

You are only one goal – one action – away from achieving GREATNESS in your life! Take action today and watch your life transform!

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.
