There are plenty of mixed feelings about 2016. It was a year of growth, of loss, unexpected surprises, scandal, regrets and new beginnings. It gave us a lot to focus on if we chose to focus on those things, but why do we want to? What purpose does looking back serve? Don't get me wrong we need historical references to have a greater understanding of the Good the Bad the Ugly of 2016. However we must not stay there. We should be looking in the direction of which we desire to go. For me that direction is onward and upward. By continuously looking back, we completely miss key oppotunities ahead of us; debating what we did wrong, what we could have done better, and did we engage and cultivate the right relationships. It's all a bit overwhelming, and can be a very exhaustive state of mind.
Whew...now that 2016 is behind us, let us focus on looking forward. Looking in the direction that we want to go, the direction our game plan set the path for. This year I didnt make a resolution or promises to myself or other people. Instead I created a plan with measurable objectives. Whatever I didn't do in 2016 to move me closer to my goal I cannot change it now. Nevertheless, I'm laser focused, I have written action and execution plans, and more importantly a new accountability group. So that's it, nothing new. I didn't recreate the wheel, I didn't have a life changing experience, and I dont have regrets or any lingering woulda coulda shoulda symptons. All I have is a crazy amount of determination, a great therapist and a 2017 Map. I'm not looking back because that is not the way I am going. I may need to stop and recharge along the way, and I might need to slow down to be reflective; but the coordinates of my map have been set. There's no looking back now and it's not the direction I'm going in anyway. Cheers to 2017 and the year ahead!
