I’m ditching my 2021 goals. Sort of.
I recently joined a mastermind being led by my friend and fellow writer
Carrie Rollwagen. And in this mastermind, we’ll all be working together through The 12-Week Year by Brian P Moran and Michael Lennington. The premise is simple: get more done in 12 weeks than others do in 12 months. It’s all about setting and slaying goals, so when Carrie emailed me about it, of course, I was like, “Sign me up!”
To be honest, it feels like I was screaming “Happy New Year!” just yesterday and here we are already welcoming March.
I’ve decided this will be a month for big dreams.
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.”
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.
