|The dog days of summer are beginning to fade and fall is just around the corner. Our kids are headed back to school and the leisurely pace of summer is quickly becoming just a memory. We find ourselves shifting into high gear to get everything done. It occurred to me that this is quite a paradigm shift that we all experience this time of year. That being said, why do we make resolutions for New Years? Do our lives really change that drastically from December 31st to January 1st? Why not take advantage of the natural momentum that fall brings to make some real and lasting changes in our personal and professional lives? Even if you don’t have children, we are coming up on the end of the fiscal year and all the work that goes in wrapping the year up.
At this point, most of us are already in list-making mode, organizing everyone and everything. This is a great time to add personal goals to this list. You are rested and renewed from the summer and ready to charge ahead. Whether it be fitness goals, self-improvement and further learning, this is a great time to take stock of your goals and plans for accomplishing them.
