Hail to the Six 2021-01-22 15:00:23

As of today the year is 6% complete. 

Have you progressed six percent on any goals you had for this year? 

Do you still have goals by this time of the year? 

Or have they vaporized into the droll winds of holiday's end?

Hope it's the former. This is the first time I ever felt happy with my first six from all perspectives of life. 

  • tranquility
  • purpose
  • emotional
  • physical
  • productivity

Usually by this time around is when I start getting the engine heated up. Usually I went full slob and sloth mode at the end of the year and into the new year. Usually I look back at my first six and think the next 94 better be very different.

This is the first that i've been happy with my first six. 

Ironically, I know that the next 94 will be even better because the cylinders are already running.

loves the idea of no new years as in get started right now whatever day it is. Don't wait. And this line of thinking is shared amongst us three.

It's funny because you and Brandon share this line of thinking however you frame it differently. For Brandon it's no new years. For you it's everyday is new year! 

Different days have me more impacted by one framing or the other. I think this is key to admit that there is no absolute framing that will work forever in all contexts. Some days you need to feel like today is your new year. Some days you need to feel like there is no such ceremonial thing. 

The takeaway from both messaging is: do

I have said both "No New Year's Resolutions" and "Today is January 1st" on any given day of the year. Yoda said it best: "Do or do not. There is no try."

Very nice Sir Abe. You seem like you are on top of things. I am still a little inactive and don't feel like the year has really started yet. Though I am still writing, I am not doing much in other areas. I have fond a new affection for sleeping more than usual - even for lunch. I feel like I am warming up to get back to executing again. Soon.
