I’m a big fan of the mantra “December is the new January.” Every December I encourage the women of See Jane Write to start setting and slaying their goals for the next year long before New Year’s Day.
But some years, February is the new January.
Some years you don’t get off to the great start you’d hoped for and you need to give yourself a do-over.
Some years you need a February fresh start.
For me, 2021 is one of those years. And that’s okay.
If you can relate, give yourself permission to begin again.
As George Eliot once said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
For nearly a decade I’ve been trying to get my LinkedIn life together. I’ve
shared on this blog before that I’m LinkedIn lame. And I’m pretty sure that sleeping on the power of LinkedIn and how it can help freelance writers has been one of my biggest social media mistakes.
Happy New Year!
Are you ready to tackle your 2021 goals?
Maybe you’re still struggling to set goals for the new year.
If so, I get it.
This year tried to kill me. For real. There’s no hyperbole in that statement.
Cancer come along and tried to take my life and many of the things that make life worth living.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the constant reminders of racial injustice almost stole my joy.
The deaths of loved ones almost took my hope.
But in spite of it all, I kept going.
Every December I not only set goals for the upcoming year, but I choose a word for the year, too. I knew what my word for 2021 would be before we were halfway through 2020.
