Is there a “right” way to start the New Year? Maybe. There sure are plenty of “wrong” ways, but guess what? It doesn’t matter.
Remember that it’s not whether you start the year with a bang, or with the “right” goals, but that you make progress towards success, even in small ways, throughout the year. We all have times when the ups and downs of life get in the way of our best-laid plans. We falter, we stumble, we crash to the ground. But we also pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and keep moving forward, having learned something that will help us in the future.
May your year be truly everything you want it to be. But if it turns out not to be perfect, or the “right” start, don’t worry, there’s always a chance to change things.
