It’s the 18th of January. How are your writing efforts going so far for the year?
Let me guess:
- You’re back at your everyday life.
- Most of the Christmas decorations are safely stored away.
- You’ve settled in to the “routine” of the 50 weeks out of the year that are NOT around Christmas and New Years.
And you’re occasionally thinking about the goals you set in early January, your goal for your book among them, but you’re not exactly taking action.
Yep, me too!
Quitter’s day is officially the second Friday in January.
And no, it’s not the day where you think to yourself, “Nope! I’m out. I quit.” And go back to the status quo. But it is the day – or weekend – where the goals you set for yourself quietly start to slip away.
I’ve got the BEST news for you though:
Neither January 1 NOR the second Friday in January ACTUALLY have any power in your life!
Neither one is a magical, mystical, mysterious Start or End date.
They are just that… days. Like any other.
It’s not too late to get into motion for your book (or any other goal!) in 2022. Or even in this year of your life. You’re not too old, the year isn’t too far gone, it’s not too close to the start of Q2 or March Madness or mercury retrograde or vacation season or National Banana Day. (That’s a “real” thing. It’s April 20.)
