Can you remember what you were doing a year ago right about now? What you were working on? I can, and when I do I am aware of how last year feels so impossibly long ago. And yet, in seemingly the blink of an eye, here we are again …
Today you have a choice. You can follow the same plan and do all the things that you did a year ago, hiding in the relative security (obscurity?) of the familiar, or you can rewrite the rules to winning your own game.
Whatever 2017 will be for you, it begins and ends with you. You and your attitude have the greatest influence on the year ahead. So here are a few suggestions:
Expect it to be hard.
Expect more of yourself.
Expect that others will need more of your patience and compassion.
Expect the need to up your game.
Expect any short cuts or quick fixes to let you down.
Expect to fail if you did the same thing you did before.
Expect the lizard.
Happy New Year.
