“I don’t want it baby, if it’s that easy.”
I Get Around – 2Pac
Welp. It’s that time of year again.
People are packing up Christmas trees, recycling old wrapping paper and looking forward to the coming year. For some, it’s the time of year that is a relief, a fresh start. For others, it’s a stressful time for making plans/resolutions that will be over drafted from memory banks before Valentine’s Day. There will be corny catch phrases created to serve as motivation for where they want to go, you know, something like: “Chasing my dream in 2014” or something like that. But what a lot of people will forget to do is reflect.
Sometimes, we get so involved in planning the future that we forget to review the previous plans. At some point, those plans were ALSO awesome, remember? “2012 was hell, but I’m gonna gleam in 2013”? What happened to THOSE plans? This year, before you start making all of your plans for the future, I want to encourage you to take a few moments to look at your failures of the past twelve months. Those are the things that you can build on in the coming year – if for no other reason, for the sake of redemption.
It’s not easy to focus on all of the things that we’ve done wrong, but who said that it was going to be easy? And if it was easy, wouldn’t everyone be doing it? Here’s to all of the mistakes that we’ve made this year (as entrepreneurs and in our day to day lives), and a toast to transforming those flaws into successes.
