I think I’ve waited long enough to make my first post of the new year.
It might be a bit late, but happy new year anyways! I’m hoping that your 2020 is off to a great start.
This post really isn’t supposed to be about new beginnings, but as the first blog post of the year, I guess it can be.
If you think about it, the starting of a new year really doesn’t change the passage of time, but what it does give us is a marker for the beginning and the end of a large snapshot of time. A measure of time that we can use to our advantage.
It’s a significant measure of time that is important to a lot of us.
It’s important to a lot of us because we set goals for ourselves that we’d like to achieve by the end of the year.
Some of those goals are met, while others are not.
I do this myself every single year. While some of the goals were realistic and reachable within a year, some were simply not.
I don’t treat these unmet yearly goals as failures, I use these unmet goals as a measure of how realistic I was in my predictions, a measure of how much effort I put into each of those goals, a measure of how important of each of those goals were, and as a tool to reevaluate each goal on their own.
Some goals just take a longer to achieve than others or maybe they were just started later in the year.
You don’t have to wait until January to set new goal yourself, you can do it any time you want and give yourself any length of time you want to achieve it.
The most important part about setting goals and resolutions for yourself every January is taking action. Taking the first step towards reaching your goals is the most important and crucial step.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
