I’ve never been so excited for a year to end... not because it was a terrible year or anything. But because I’m building momentum and riding it into 2017. Usually I would feel burnt out by mid-November and really slow down through the end of the year and tell myself "hey bud, take a break and pick things back up in January". That was the old me... this year it’s gas to the floor to end 2016!
HERE’S WHY YOU FEEL BURNT OUT BY THE END OF THE YEAR…
January and February most people spend on goal setting then March rolls around and they start to implement new habits. The next couple months are split between trying new ideas and reverting to old habits to make some progress and feel good about the fact that the year is almost halfway over. Then... "hey! it’s starting to get warm out; what’s the point of doing anything now, you can’t get anything done in the summer?"
Come the end of August… the year is ⅔ over “I have 4 months left and I haven’t accomplished anything!!”. Familiar?
September kicks off hard… but right after Labor Day… and when the leaves start to change. So end of September until Thanksgiving it’s a grind and then its holiday party season. Looking back at your year or basically September-November and pat yourself on the back on a job well done and coast for the rest of the year but was it?
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years.
- Abraham Lincoln
There was no consistency in that model. Everything predicated on the fact that nothing was prepare for the next year in the previous year. Wasted time and energy when you could have been getting ahead. Who can relate to the process I just outlined? It’s exactly why the gym is so packed in January and February. New year, new goals… however most people haven’t done the pre work to build up the habit before January. So it becomes such a stretch, momentum is lost quickly and old habits emerge in the next few months when people fall off.
What would it take for you to start feeling more fulfilled TODAY? Not waiting until January 1st to start that to-do list or set goals for the year. Or not feeling anxious about all the holiday plans or going back to work and not being able to relax. Or another year being finished and you still haven't found your way.
What if you could take action RIGHT NOW?
Think about it... and I will be back to share my solution before the end of the year :)
