Another Page is Turning
As I write this on the morning of July 30th, 2020 I have a few thoughts I'd like to share. We are about to rip another page off the calendar and begin a new month. A lot of people like to
use a new month, week, or even year as a chance to start something new. An opportunity to hit the reset button on some aspect of their life they would like to change. What I'm going to suggest here is a little different though. My suggestion for you, in August, is not to start something new, but rather to double-down on something you're already good at. Let's not try to add something new into our lives until we've become even more disciplined and dedicated to things we are already working on. Think of if like this. You're focusing 70% of your effort on item A. It's going well, much better than when you weren't giving item A any of your time and attention. August rolls around and you decide to add in item B. Item B is a new thing and new things always take more time, energy and dedication as we try to implement them into our daily routine. As a byproduct of the focus given to item B, item A drops down to 60%. What I want you to do is forget item B. Rededicate yourself to item A and boost that baby up to 90% dedication. Strengthen your strengths during this new month. Rekindle that fire that made you want to commit to it in the first place. There's a reason you started it, get back to it with a whole hearted effort. You'll be glad you did.
