Today marks the halfway point of 2021 and a fresh start for the second half. Or for you fellow golfers, “Welcome To The Back Nine.”
What goal or project do you want to start or finish before the year expires? For the next three months?
As discussed in this prior post, you can divide the year into four quarters, almost like your own personal report card or basketball game. (Congrats to the Phoenix Suns and Chris Paul by the way for making it to the NBA Finals. I’m a diehard Laker fan but gotta give props to CP3.)
The author Gretchen Rubin takes it one step further. She advises breaking up each day into four quarters. She writes:
“Instead of feeling that you’ve blown the day and thinking, “I’ll get back on track tomorrow,” try thinking of each day as a set of four quarters: morning, midday, afternoon, evening. If you blow one quarter, you get back on track for the next quarter…Fail small, not big.”
So go forward. Make a ruckus. Be energized with this “fresh start.” Good luck on your second half, your third quarter, your next month, your next week, your next day, and your next quarter day! I’m rooting for you big time.
