As you know, the year 2020 will be here any minute now. It is kind of a big deal. Decade years always are, but what I love about the year, 2020, is the double-entendre: it implies 20/20 vision, too.
What do you see for yourself? What is your 20/20 vision for celebrating the New Year? Maybe all you know is that you don’t know. Trite but true:
I don’t know” is the beginning of new possibilities.
Maybe all you know is what you don’t want, eh? That has tremendous value, too, because it is still, in effect, knowing what you do want: not that.
So now what, right?
“Pester, Fester, Boom!” – the syndrome of ignoring that nagging feeling; pushing it aside like an annoying child at your apron strings; finding peace but far less often these days…
“Pester, Fester, Boom!” is pushing ‘it’ down far enough out of sight only to find that it festers out the sides of your life, the pressure eventually giving way to ‘BOOM!
There is never a convenient time for “BOOM!”, is there?
That nagging feeling can be satiated but only when you move toward the thing that calls to you. It is your next “what” in life. Stay focused on the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ makes itself known.
That’s why you are reading this, of course. Hopefully, you’ve embraced the idea that just 1% can make all the difference for you. This new year could be the year that you and others around you seek to UNtie ‘cement shoes’ to get up in that ‘hot air balloon’.
Untie cement shoes? What the #*&^ does that mean?
It looks like removing rocks from socks & boulders from your shoulders; dropping the 70lb. bag of bricks on the roadside and enlightening your load.
How to Make 2020 Different? Well, you cannot redo the past but you can rewrite the next chapter. Pay attention to where you are in the Pester, Fester, Boom process. It’s time to make the rest of your life the best of your life, and it shouldn’t take the rest of your life to do it! Decide now so you won’t feel forced to pay attention, later.
