We’re now barrelling towards the end of the year at lightspeed — which means it’s a great time to start something new.
As of today, there are 98 days left in the year. That gives you plenty of time to remind yourself of what you hoped to get done in 2019 and see if any of those goals are worth revisiting or updating.
Remember the first week of January, when you made that list of all the things you wanted to do this year? You had plans! Goals! Ambition! How’s that going now that the twenty-teens are nearly to a close? Yeah, us, too. Never fret. Now is not the time to dwell on the year’s missed opportunities — rather, you should make new ones.
Plus, for a lot of us, spring is associated with new beginnings. We swap out our clothes, change the scented candles from “ocean breeze” to “flowers in bloom”, and so on. It’s a time to reflect on what we want to do differently, even if the only thing we want to change is “give ourselves more time to reflect”.
It’s also a good time to look back on all those New Year’s Resolutions we hoped to stick to in January, and choose one — just one! — to implement in the last few months of the year. (Don’t get overambitious; you’ll be busy enough with school or your kids’ school or your boss’s announcement that the company reviewed its 2019 goals and is also hoping to get a lot of stuff done in the next 98 days.)
And if now isn’t a good time to pick up a new habit, don’t worry — the first day of summer will be here before you know it.
