Don't Put It Off Until Next Year

Christmas decorations are already in the stores. The northern hemisphere is growing colder and leaves are changing. There is a tendency to start thinking about hibernation and planning for what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year-even when it is just October.

But, why wait until January to start your goals or resolutions? Start now. Don't wait until you are older, richer, better looking or can't get up off of the couch due to those extra pounds. Thomas Dreier said, "The best preparation for a better life next year is a full, complete, harmonious, joyous life this year." Begin where you stand, with the resources that you have and get to it. Otherwise, you will wake up and find that another year has past and you haven't accomplished what is most important to you.
