There’s a song in it that starts with the line “Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes…”
That is how many minutes there are in a year – do a little math and you’ll find that comes down to 8760 hours in a year. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?

Now ask your self, how successful were you at managing the last 8700 hours? Were they spent or invested? And what’s the difference?

Ok, let’s start with the excuses for why you spent time doing not much: “There was a pandemic, I lost my job, I had to shelter in place, blah, blah, blah”. I get it, I do.

I am guessing, however, that at some level you wish you had been more proactive last year and invested your time in something that would be of help when the lockdown finally ended. That you had taken a course, got a certification, got on LinkedIn, (insert your own missed opportunity here). So that now, as the lockdown winds down, you could have been more ready.

OK, so now let’s look forward, because regrets rarely prove useful. What can be learned from how you spent the last year? What will you decide to do differently this year?

More specifically, how about August 2022? What do you want it to look like? Going forward with a plan often provides generous results, whether you are planning for a week, a month, or a year! So, decide what you want, and make a plan to get it.

Jack Canfield, a hero of mine, says “things wont change until you do”. What are you going to change?
