There is no deeper meaning behind the celebration. Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, and even Halloween all have us celebrate more unique themes.
As the ball drops in Times Square, they imagine themselves sitting on the laps of the Fates asking for nearly any kind of year their hearts desire. A couple drinks as we move toward the midnight hour couldn’t hurt this kind of wild, untethered dreaming either!
This is quite difficult!
God knows that the health and fitness industry feeds off of the idea that “this year will be my year”.
The changing of the calendar can act as an impetus to drive people to do great things. Why not?
However, we must understand what we are dreaming. We have to take our ideas about how we can have our best year beyond idle daydreaming. This means we have to create a plan. We have to understand that when we consider “the best year ever” we are considering a year of working toward that goal.
However, what you are rarely told is that the 5 Year Plan is the mainstay because it supports better goal setting for THE FIRST YEAR!
So, let’s make good on our new year’s resolutions and move towards the “best year ever”.
As always, we need to hold ourselves accountable with the power of the pen.
Since this is a three part post for accomplishing our new year’s goals. Let’s begin by writing where we would like to be in 5 years. Of course, we will have multiple things we are trying to accomplish over this period. So, write down a few of the more important things you want to accomplish by the end of five years.
