Happy New Year!

Happy new year!

Today is Nov 8. Why am I saying happy new year?

Chinese New Year is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. Feb 10, 2024. This is the largest non January 1 new year I can find. But go ahead and check out the results of “Alternative new years days.” There are dozens.

Why am I saying this? Because next year starts right now.

It has to because you don’t get enough opportunity otherwise. If you are twenty years old or older, you have about sixty years left. That’s sixty opportunities for a new-year's resolution. Not a lot, given data that shows 23% of people quit their resolution by the end of the first week, and 43% quit by the end of January. Less than 10 % achieve them at all.

What do you want to be? Great author? Great inventor? Great parent? Great fiend? Great sibling? Great sports star? What are you waiting for? January 1st? Will you be any more motivated then, than you are now? Does that date have some meaning for you that means you will succeed then instead of now?

Go do it now.

If you fail today, start tomorrow. If you fail tomorrow start the day after. Why wait until even then? You want to write a novel? Go write it. Tonight. Sit down. Write 100 words. Write an outline. Draft an idea. Don’t wait.

You have less time than you think you do.

You have more time in a day than you believe to get things done, but you have less time in a lifetime than you will want. It will take longer to achieve your goals than you can imagine.

Go. Do. Now.
