Lot of us are excited about the New Year and all the resolutions. But just remember.
Today never occurred before, it will never be repeated. At midnight it will end, quietly, totally, forever. The hours between are full of possibilities.
It’s a new year, a chance to start over, to create new, to evaluate what has and what could happen.
I am not a fan of New Years resolutions. I am not a fan of the idea of January 1st being some whimsical day that has such significance that it can change our lives. It can’t. The day is irrelevant. It’s just a day. There are 12 firsts every year. There are 52 monday’s and of course we have 365 midnights. Each of these could be starting point… couldn’t it?
My coach TD always mentions ctrl-alt-del and let us reboot and start all over again.
Every minute of every day is a chance to start over. To create new habits, ideas, choices, friends. You can make January 6th a “New Year”... if you want. Please don’t get discouraged if you already have slipped on your 2010 resolutions, it really doesn’t matter. You can start again tomorrow. It’s brilliant, isn’t it? You have control of you, not Dick Clark, not some stat holiday, not some app on your iPhone… YOU! Chew on it, it’s a new way of looking at making resolutions of making change.
Let us all look forward to future and take full responsibility towards achieving your dreams and goals. There is no use rewinding the past and reading the newspaper clippings of the past glory or failures. I am sure all of us have learned our lessons from the past and let us make each day count.
Happy New Day!
