It’s OFFICIALLY A January 1st REPEAT Y’all!!!
Yep…another New Year’s Day marks the First Calendar Square …Day 1 of 365…WHOOP! WHOOP! 🎉 One aspect of that statement is Hard to Believe (the whole “Time Flies” vibe…) and yet it’s obviously what all of our minds anticipate EVERY December 31st.
NEW YEAR APPROACH….
Although New Year’s Day will be the common thought running through our minds, at least between Bowl Games 😜, each of us approaches “The New Year” in our own unique way. Some will have already mapped out their 2018 Goals using spreadsheets, vision boards, apps, etc. Others will ease into the New Year using January as a month of reflection; assessing what went well in 2017 and how to improve the “opportunity areas”, and then formulate their plan forward to attain the outcomes they envision. No doubt there are unlimited scenarios beyond these two examples.
NEW YEAR FEEL….
Beyond “thoughtful” goal setting and planning there’s another accompaniment to New Year Beginnings – Emotions. The New Year can evoke emotions across the Positive / Negative spectrum; Anticipation, Excitement, Joy, Happiness, Fear, Dread, etc.; ANY and ALL of which can dramatically impact our New Year Approach. These varying emotions can be conjured up based on how the previous year ended, or instilled within us by upcoming events already filling time slots on our New Year calendar. Again, these possible emotional influencers are limitless.
NEW YEAR’s DAYS….
Regardless of Our uniquely designed “New Year Approach” and Our individual Emotions accompanying that process, there’s one COMMON dynamic We All share. As obvious and cliché as it sounds, WE can ONLY Live “One Day at a Time”. And for that we should be both THANKFUL and RELIEVED!! It’s great to approach any New Year with an Action Plan to achieve improved outcomes personal, physical, spiritual, team, business, or otherwise, but it’s the Daily Steps taken COLLECTIVELY that will lead to attaining our desired outcome. Ultimately, it’s our DAILY APPROACH that carries the most Impact in achieving Our New Year Plan. Keeping this thought in mind will help to ward off the potential for feeling Overwhelmed and will also assist in keeping ourselves focused and persistent in pursuing our goals for this specific New Year.
