“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
Yesterday I wrote how much I love the start of a new year. It is a great “line in the sand” that serves as both a mental reset and a starting point for new goals. I don’t believe in setting “resolutions” as all too often those are just loosely formed ideas that don’t have a plan to turn into reality.
For me the power of a new beginning isn’t the setting of a new goal, it is the energy that you use to create the plan that will make that goal become a reality. It is the energy that you need to create a new habit. It is the energy you use to springboard into the next stop along your journey.
Don’t make resolutions, make plans. Don’t let the opportunity to harness this new energy slip past unused. Take the time today to write down your goals and plan your next actions. The new year dawns brightly, how are you going to use it?
“The magic in new beginnings is truly the most powerful of them all.”
