Ever been dressed up with nowhere to go? What do you do? Can’t waste a good outfit and all that energy! or in this case, you can’t waste all that motivational momentum you have either; January has begun and we are ready to go! But where are you going? January is one of those months that leaves us feeling rejuvenated. It’s a month of refreshment where many of us are excited about the potential that a new year may present to us. It’s a month dedicated to the motivated, for it is your first opportunity of the new year to get the momentum flowing.
I’ve heard it said that the first few months of the year, will set the tone for the entire year. Therefore, with that understanding, I would think of January as a Monday, because the beginning of the week typically sets the tone for the rest of the week. However, the pace is important this time of year, because it’s easy to be revved up in the first quarter but it can be challenging to maintain that steam in the 3rd and the 4th. However, I’m not concerned with your 4th quarter energy right now! Let’s focus on what we have in front of us right now, and what we have in front of us is the present. We have one day to live in, with visions of many more to live for, and at this point in the game, January is for the motivated. That motivation that you have, apply it wisely.
