My friend Sam Davidson said in a blog post recently “Announcements are a dime a dozen – maybe even less expensive than that. If you want to do something valuable, don’t tell anyone. Get to work, finish it, and when you’re done, show us.”
I feel the same way about New Year’s Resolutions. I’m all for making declarations, setting intention, with measurable goals BUT I don’t feel like January 1 is the ultimate decider for these goals. In fact, world on the street is you don’t have to wait until January 1 to improve. But since it IS already January, why not set your goal and then make your announcements AFTER you accomplished a milestone towards your long-term plans. Life changes constantly and more often than not making a year long declaration after a week filled with sugar, and likely alcohol, may not be your best option.
So, instead of sharing my year-long plans (just yet) I thought I’d give you guys some of my favorite quotes that I plan on living by this year. (Click on each image to see the source)
Happy New Year! And cheers to making your dreams a reality in 2014!
