It’s been real 2017. What up 2018! I would like to start the new year off right and immediatley liberate those who are feeling the “New Year, New You” blues. Let me be the first to say, the way resolutions are discussed and thrown around in conversation, can be likened to fad diets and hair weaves: eating a healthy diet and being on a diet are two totally different things, so is doing your hair and getting your hair done; the latter examples are transactional, require little effort, and yield temporary satisfaction, while the former require that you put in time, repetition and patience to see results and that you be analytical and make personal adjustments along the way, to meet your needs.
A great place to start when looking to revamp, implement, or discontinue any attitude, action and/or belief that is no longer serving you, is to evaluate the systems you have in place and or need to put in place that are going to facilitate and continue to support what it is you are up to or desire to create. Another place you'll want to give immediate attention to is your tool belt. Are you equipped with or have access to the tools that allow you to manifest your goal. And lastly, you'll want to implement processes that demand your systems and tools work together cohesively.
You may be wondering what's with all this talk abut systems, tools, and processes and what the hell the difference between all of them are; I'll go into further detail about all of that in another post. Long story short, you want every effort you make, and action you take to be working in tandem to ensure you're headed in the right direction.
