Are you failing your New Year’s resolutions?
Bored and onto a new trend? Starting another project because the current one isn’t going well? Feeling the let down of early winter? You’re not alone in your disappointment. I’m never sure if early winter blahs arrive because of all the anticipation, hustle, and entertainment of the end of the last year ramps up our hopes for a good change. Whatever you tend to think, you’re a few weeks into another year and now what?
Your feelings are a magic guide.
You can say, “Now what!?” negatively or, “Now what?” positively. The negative spin takes you further down a road of disappointments. Knowing how to work with your uncomfortable feeling can help you discover ways to get whatever you want.
If you made a plan for yourself, how is it going? You’re about half way through your first quarter. Are you where you wanted to be? Even if you made the effort to write it all out, you have to take action on it to realize any result. How are you measuring your progress? Did you remember to build in time for reviewing, adjusting, and retooling your plan?
Didn’t bother to make a plan?
It’s not too late to think about what you want and how you’re going to make it happen. There is no rule that says when you need to create your plan of action. The start of a new year seems to fit, only because it’s just like ending a project (last year) and you feel something else needs to follow. Aimlessly wandering through your life will not get you what you want, so having a plan and acting on it becomes an important tool to help you get what you want out of life. Feeling let down is a good thing, because it’s a great measurement of where you are right now.
Work with it until you drill down into what’s working for you, and what’s not. Knowing exactly how your plan is working in this moment, is golden information you can use to create the life you want, the job or projects you want to work, the people you want to spend time with, and move in the body and mind you are most comfortable within.
