July 1, 2014

 

Recently I picked up a copy of Psychology Today because the cover story is "Reinvent Yourself: How to Plan Your Next Act."  Obviously a topic near and dear to my heart.  While I haven't finished reading the article yet, I have already gleamed some words of wisdom.  One seems particularly fitting today as we reach the half way point in 2014.

I'm not going to ask you to remember back to January 1, 2014 and the resolutions that you may or may not have made.  Why?  Because even if you made them, I doubt you kept them.

Resolutions are difficult to keep especially as we get older and resist more mightily any changes, even ones of our own making.  Change is difficult.  Yet critical for survival.  Thank you Charles Darwin.

I'd like to ask you to contemplate this quote from the article: "We spend a lot of time thinking about the future, but do a poor job of acting to achieve the future we desire."

After you've thought about that, please take a minute to let me know what you think.
