I don't have to say it but it's true. It's Wednesday, it's January, it's the first day of the month. You get the point, Oh yea, it's the first day of the year. Who knew?
Last year was awesome. I played with some talented musicians, met some amazing people, started a second home base on the west coast and I started this blog! Wow, things are pretty exciting. It doesn't really make sense to me to think about a whole year before it happens, trying to plan it out to the tee. There are things I want to do in the future. If they happen this year, awesome, if not, so what. As long as there's a strive to reach your goals and there's progress, then the "deadline" can just find something better to do with it's silly little date flashing around as a stress enhancer for others. Sure, slacking is a terrible habit to be associated with, but sometimes things just need to be marinated with time. Minus the slacking. NO SLACKING! And an imaginary deadline is pointless for those instances. It's the ride that counts.
(Funny, I wasn't that way a few months ago. It was supposed to take a week to drive cross country. But being my first road trip, I wasn't quite used to that concept. So the trip only took three days instead of seven. There was no rush the whole time, which was good. It was just a new thing. That sounds ridiculous to me coming from me. Next time will be different. Jeez, I was weird.)
So instead of a resolution for an entire year, take it day by day. Have a goal, and focus on progress. You might do better by the end of the year than you think. If not there was still progress made. Just keep moving forward. And for crying out loud No Slacking! Please.
