We get towards year ends and not only does that mean endless Facebook ‘My Year in Review’ posts but it also means we’ll say to ourselves ‘2018, it’s going to be a great year!!!’ then at the end 2018 we’ll say ‘well, this year didn’t quite go to plan, but 2019, it’s going to be a great year!!’ and then, the same cycle repeats.
It only changes when we take action to make the next year great. But the problem with making the ‘next year’ great, is a year is too big a time frame and the end of it is too far away to seem urgent enough.
What if we said ‘January 2018 is going to be a great month!!’? All of sudden it’s immediate and there is nowhere to hide.
