If I look back at 2019 all I have to pay attention to is the last few weeks which account for some small changes that will continue to add up, either by the results delivered down the road or by simply being put in motion so as to lead to whatever is next.
Action. You want to look back at all your problems or losses as well as your wins and gains. Do it. Quickly. You can take the pat-on-the-back for comfort or attaboy, but don't strain your neck looking over your shoulder at what's happened. Look forward knowing that your past has prepared you.
Your hindsight will bring headway in 2020 if and only when you take action to make small changes that lead to big results. Start with smiling more, walking more or talking less, scrolling less. Inaction and action are one in the same.
A few weeks ago I put in place 100/100 reps of push-ups/pull-ups. 20 plus days in I have added another 100 reps of something else. Each day I put forth the effort to knock out 300 repetitions of a variety of exercises. The first thing this has taught me - It Is Possible. In an ever decreasing amount of time. Secondly it is contagious - others in my different circles are repping out their own variation. Third and foremost - thinking about and doing it take the same amount of energy.
If I just think about doing, my energy is drained. If I do the things I used to think about my energy is boosted. Same energy, different effort, better results.
We can look back with 20/20 hindsight or we can look forward, nose squished-squinting to the horizon to take action for all that is ahead of us. Preferably with a smile. Be blessed.
