Now What?

What’s the definition of insanity? Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. Oprah Winfrey said it best, “Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

How is it that we place so much importance on a new year and resolutions? On one hand, the absurdities of the celebration ignite the skeptics. On the other, the signficance of the event encourage the opportunists. The pragmatist will question what’s the big deal between 11:59 PM and 12:00 AM the next day – it’s just another day. That’s the beauty of it all. January 1st is “just another day” if that’s what you allow it to be. It doesn’t have to be though. The challenge for all of us is to make today different and expect different results.  How do you do it? I believe this quote frames it perfectly.

 “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

Start writing!  Happy New Year!
