As Good A Day As Any....
This time of year is great for reviewing past performance and getting started on future improvements, but to be honest, so are April 27th, August 18th and November 3rd.
Sure tomorrow, New Year’s Day, offers a great psychological start point for some types of goals (and makes checking how long you’ve been doing something a lot easier), but the day itself has no mystical properties to help us succeed.
Most of my 2022 goals are drafted, but some still need work in definition and some still lack lack timescales. And that’s OK, because it is better to embark on a properly defined goal next week, than to start out tomorrow on something wooly and vague and give up next Thursday.
If you are ready to go with your goals, then go, and don’t put off the work that needs to be done - but if a few more days of refinement and planning could mean the difference between success and failure, then January 4th is as good a day as any….
