Just 365 opportunities to learn and get better

It’s the new year. Every time the new year begins, it feels to me like we have an eternity ahead to do great things. I guess that’s possibly why we run out of steam on our new year resolutions by the end of the first month. There always seems to be time to fix it (or not).

But, something changed in my mind when I was writing an email yesterday where I spoke of 365 new opportunities to learn and get better. I stopped.

365? That’s not so many at all. Scratch that. There’s only 357 more. Before we know it, it will be March, then the summer, then the period looking forward to the end-of-year break and then December. Most importantly, there are only 357 opportunities to be awesome this new year.

Let’s use them well.
