This is the time of year when folks are talking about their New Year’s Resolutions. Being the poster child for Adult ADHD, it took me many years to accept the fact that I struggle with long-term goal setting, although over the years I muscled through and have been fortunate to accomplish some great long-term goals.
A long time ago I decided to focus instead on New Day’s Resolutions. I get up every morning, give thanks to God for another day and resolve to add as much value as possible to whomever crosses my path that day. Of course there are some business and personal goals I also focus on on a daily basis too. Daily basis, not yearly basis. Subtle distinction, huge difference.
So while many are resolving to lose 100 pounds and a foot or so around their waist while getting rich in record time, perhaps just focus on the day. And do the best you can. And then do that again tomorrow. And so on. You may be surprised as to what you can actually accomplish. Small efforts repeated over time produce massive results.
