I’m excited about moving into 2018! How about you?
How do you sum up 2017: life changing, goals realized, figuring it out, really tough, adventurous, quiet, magical…?
As I ponder what 2017 meant for me, I am thinking about 2018.
There are 4 quarters in a year. In business, we look at the year, then we break it down into quarters and monthly/weekly/daily goals, so that by the end of the year we are on target for reaching our goals.
Personal lives are the same. We accomplish more if we write down a plan and try to stick to it. Some years I am good at this, some years I have thoughts in my mind of what I want to accomplish, but the thoughts seem to stay there, because…. THAT’S JUST IT, the word “because” holds me back.
So, this year, 2018 is about tackling the word, “because.” It’s time to think like an Olympian enough with the “because.”
Two years ago, my College friend (Dave, Life In A Word) suggested we challenge ourselves and create a Blog. We both enjoy writing. The catch was that we had to commit to Blogging once a week for one year! We shook hands, no turning back.
Now, two years later, Dave and I can confidentially say, “we are Bloggers.” We didn’t let the word “because” stop us. We committed!
2018 starts tomorrow! I am thinking and planning.
For today, I want to head to the gym, but the word “because (it’s too cold outside)” is already coming to my mind. You see how that word “because” causes problems.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
