I’m not the guy who sets New Year’s Resolutions.
I don’t believe that being resolute or trying to change your habits or lifestyle or fitness should happen at one specific time each year.
If you think about a calendar change as the time to make a life change, then why not consider making a resolution the first of each month?
That makes a really nice 30 Day challenge.
Or the first of the week? (Sundays (or Mondays for those of you that believe the week starts on Monday, haha)).
If you wanna dig down deeper, every day is a new start that you can jump into and start fresh!
For me, January 1st brought a good office cleaning. It’s been needing it.
Vacuuming, dusting, organizing, going through paperwork that required a January 2 phone call to keep my business and family running smoothly and filing things away that had been dealt with.
Then, cleaning my workshop area in the garage.
The last couple months of projects had left my long workbench covered with tools and project leftovers that desperately needed cleaning and organizing.
Last summer, I decided I wanted to make some oars for our raft. I have one roughed out and high on a rack, the other is on my bench, covered with stuff.
I finally got it uncovered, organized my planers, clamps, honing tools and now it’s ready for me to get back to asap and get them finished this winter for the summer.
Then some de-decking from the holidays to get the house back to normal. As much as we love decorating, we also love the change back in January.
It’s also good to go through some of these steps more often than just once a year – especially office cleaning.
It gets me more excited to get up each day and see how I can best support my family, clients and community.
Which keeps me more in the mode of giving and wanting to use my knowledge and skills to help other businesses grow and succeed.
After 15+ years of Facebook and Google marketing and ad buying, this is some of the little stuff that keeps me excited about what I do each day (in addition to dog walks, mt. bike lunch loops, woodworking and river trips).
What are the little things you do to keep excited about what you do?
