To be honest, I think it’s a bunch of bull.
I don’t want to be a new me. I want to be a better me.
At the end of every year I evaluate how it went. If you’ve read any of my other blog posts, you’ll quickly realize other years (with the exception of 2015) haven’t gone so hot. And by not so hot, I mean hot mess. Judge me.
But I’ve never wanted to change who I was. Never.
Did I want to get my shit together? Yes.
Did I want to improve my relationships with people? Yes.
Did I want to be a better mentor? Yes.
Did I want to grow as a professional? Yes.
With each of these I’ve wanted to be BETTER. I’ve wanted to learn from my experiences and build off of them to create NEW memories in the upcoming year.
So here’s my challenge to you in 2016…
Look deep within your soul and look for what needs improvement. Be realistic, but push yourself. Find something you want to be better at. It can be something as simple as not interrupting people while they speak, or pack your lunch 3x a week. To each their own.
But please promise me that in 2016 you’ll strive to be better. This world only has one of you, and we don’t want a new one, we want to help you be a better one.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
