As hard as I try to pretend that it’s just another day, there is something undeniably special about the New Year. Perhaps it’s the #1 on my calendar, or the first month of a year, or the first day of a quarter… or perhaps, it’s the fact that I’ve been conditioned to think of it as a blank slate.
Whatever it is… I like it.
Each year I set a theme for the year. It’s something I do for fun, but it also acts like a mantra for me throughout the year.
Last year was Epic Growth & Adventure.
There was a lot of both in 2018.
I drove across North America (twice) – once with my family and once solo.
Led several international business retreats.
Hired a coach with my wife.
… and too many more things to mention.
In 2019, the theme I’m choosing is Joy & Love.
This doesn’t mean that epic growth and adventure stop. Those are two things that are simply part of me.
My new theme will serve as more of a mantra – a True North for me this New Year.
What’s your theme going to be for 2019?
Let me know, and we can keep each other accountable.
