You’ve Been Given A Gift

Happy New Year!  Congratulations you’ve been given a gift.  We all have.  But this year, the gift feels just a bit more special, doesn’t it?

The gift of this New Year is a clean slate.  Despite the challenges of 2020, we each have the ability to mentally turn the page.  While we all know that the virus does not just go away today, the New Year is always a chance to start over.  It’s a chance to take a fresh look at what we want from our lives…and begin the steps to achieve it.

We get this gift every year.

But many years we fail to appreciate it.  We fail to really open it.  We fail to truly take advantage of the gift of the New Year (or new month, or new week) for one reason.  We love to come up with ideas…but we don’t always love to execute.  The execution is the hard part.  It’s the grind.  But it’s also where the magic happens.  It’s where we truly unwrap the gift.

So on this New Year’s Day, I would encourage you to take the time to set your goals.  If you are not sure where to start, here is a simple technique using the 5 F’s.  Start there and write them down.  It is a simple but powerful step.  It’s the first step in opening the gift.

The next step is persisting.  It’s showing up when you don’t feel like it.  It’s working out when you are already sore.  Or it might be hitting publish when you are not sure anyone is listening…like on New Year’s Day.  You can listen to episode 26 of the Promo UpFront podcast here.  Bill and I are not sure if you (or anyone) will want to listen on New Year’s Day.  But we have made a promise to ourselves and to our audience to show up on Friday.  Every Friday.

That is how we unwrap the gift.

The Longer The Idea Sits

Each morning during the week, I walk/run for a couple of miles to get my blood flowing.  It helps with my fitness, but that was not originally the point.  The idea is to get my blood pumping and brain working.  It's been a great habit that helps me start my day on the...
