Thank God it’s Monday! Let’s get after it…
Here in the U.S., we will celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday this week. Thus, making today the official delineating point where it’s acceptable for lazy procrastinators to reply to every request with the phrase, “Let’s circle back and look at this after the holidays.” If you buy into this nonsense, you’re essentially writing off about six weeks of every year. That’s a pretty large chunk of time.
Putting things off this time of year is a common reaction that allows you to portray optimism about the New Year, when everything will somehow magically become better. But there are two compelling reasons you may want to avoid this wishful thinking:
Let me challenge you today to make the most of 2022 while you still have this opportunity. Close out the year fierce, so you can begin the next one even stronger. And let me be the first to wish you…Happy Old Year!
P.S. One of the things I love to do this time of year is writing Manifestos. Back in 2013 I wrote one about creative genius. Readers felt it was one of the best things I’ve ever written…or one of the worst. Check it out and decide for yourself.
