What Have You Done in the Last 20 Days?
Please don't let this New Year turn into a bad memory. Your actions in the last twenty days already set the tone. Do you like the beat of the music or is it time to dance to a different tune?
I decided to use my OCD tendencies to focus the majority of my attention on an important family matter. Because the matter is private, I'm choosing to keep my strategy off-line until I complete the task. The music I'm dancing to this year is fast-paced and unfamiliar, like a salsa. It requires time and focus to master all the complicated moves associated with my #1 New Year's resolution. My job is to remain on the dance floor until this goal is accomplished.
I find inspiration in all three of our children. They are pursuing their goals like champions. They remind me about a wise mentor who once shared with me his definition of success: "Success is the continuous journey towards the achievement of pre-determined worthwhile goals." ~ Tom Hopkins.
What have you done in the last twenty days? Are you focused? It's not too late to change the music. Have a great day.
