FORTY YEAR OLD CHECK UP (4/5)

2.  REFRESH AND REWRITE.  Everyday is a new day to start new… I know you’ve heard this one before.  You might have heard it so many times, you’ve overlooked the fact that it is true.  I know I have.  We all have to understand that “change” does not happen over time.  It happens in an instant.  Many times it just takes us days, weeks, months or even years to finally reach the point to actually make that decision to change.

That is why I want to encourage myself to refresh my life daily.  My physical life, business life, family life, etc.  I am actually writing this part of this post on New Year’s Day.  While fliping through news channels and glancing over a couple websites online, New Year’s Resolution stories and tips are everywhere.  This annual reboot somehow conditions us that it can only be a yearly thing.  I would encourage you to break out of that and refresh whenever you need it.  When talking to a friend who worked at a gym, I asked when is the busiest day of the week, and week of the month.  He told me Mondays and the first week of the month.  If the first day of the month fell on a Monday, it is a safe bet the parking lot will be jammed.  Something subconsciously in us needs to “start” at the “start” of something, when in reality we need to restart when we’re aware of needed change, whether that comes on a Wednesday or 21st of the month.

We need to refresh whenever we find ourselves sliding away from our standards or those times which we need to make new ones.  We might need to rewrite our standards from time to time, and it doesn’t have to be on a Monday, first week of the month or even January first.  We have the power to rewrite our futures “write” now (get it?). Just realize we don’t need to reinvent the wheel or recreate our life’s purpose.  Refreshing can be seen as a quick adjustment to our course, but rewriting is sometimes needed to completely refigure our destination.      (To be continue next week)
