The Simplicity Guide to Your Relationships

The Simplicity Guide to Your Relationships

This is a simple guide that you can use to evaluate each of your relationships. This guide is not meant to be exhaustive or the ultimate authority but to give you a practical workflow to simplify your life by helping you focus on the most important people or group of people. [tweet this]
