Welcome to the end of a month of ideas to beat the February Blues!
Day 29: Make a plan.
I know this feels like a regular Monday, but it’s not. It’s the end of a hard month. A date that comes only once every four years. So take some time today to reflect. To look back on your last four years: How have you grown? What went well? What didn’t go so well? What would you like to do differently in the future?*
Of, if that’s too much to take on in just 24 extra hours, make a smaller goal. Perhaps you want to run a half-marathon (though 13.1 miles isn’t really “half” of anything) or learn to tap dance. Maybe you want to commit more deeply to your faith, or make time to work with a cause dear to your heart. Great!
Then make a plan.
*That little 3-question mantra (What when well, what went poorly, what will you do differently next time) comes from Make It Stick, by Peter C. Brown. I highly recommend it, and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg if you want to make a change. (My reviews of both books are here.)
