1476727554244A few years ago, I was given a page-a-day desk calendar, as a Christmas gift. On New Year’s Day, I picked a prominent position on my bedroom nightstand, for display, and turned it to the first page: January 1st.

The next morning, I leaned over to turn the page to January 2, but then I had a thought, as I tend to do, at 4 a.m.

I thought about what the first day of January represents. I thought about the millions of people setting resolutions to excercise more, lose weight, eat healthier, be more social, be a better parent, spouse, friend, etc. January 1st represents a new beginning.

I decided to leave it on January 1st. And all these years later, it is still on January 1st.

I am always looking for ways to keep myself motivated to be the best version of myself. I am a firm believer in daily growth. Seeing January 1st on the calendar in the morning, reminds me that every new day is a new beginning.

So, why wait for New Year’s day, to change your life?

Resolve to be better EVERY day, in EVERY way.

January 1st is not just a date on the calendar. It’s also a state of mind.
