There’s a unique rhythm to the summer—with its hot days, comforting winds and flurry of fun.
While the preceding hasn’t come to an abrupt stop, it all seems a wee bit different now.
Kids no longer glance at the clock to see how many minutes until their favorite TV show starts or how much time they have to play a video game. But instead, acknowledge they’ve now got four minutes to get dressed, wolf-down breakfast and catch the school bus!
Adults have likely completed their vacations and realize—at least here in the U.S., Labor Day is the unofficial line of demarcation between work and play. It’s about now, business folks exclaim: “Whoa! Eight months gone, better do something.” (I think my Dad was right, as we age, time moves faster!)
Whether it’s back to work or back to school, each can be a time of anticipation and anxiety. Hope and hesitation. Promise and procrastination.
Yet most important, each represents a new beginning.
So what will you do, to make your daily new beginning?
How will you rejuvenate?
Re-invent how you approach your life—at home and at business?
What skills, attitudes and behaviors will be critical to your success?
What actions will you take?
Now, is a good time to work smart and bust your butt. To be tenacious when others are timid. To be fearless when others are fearful. To produce results while others concoct excuses.
And as you succeed…along the way…take some time for recess!
