Mid-Year New Years Resolutions

I’ve just finished reading an article by Jim Collins – author of Good to Great and other excellent books. 

In this article, Jim talks about his annual ritual of doing a ‘stop doing list‘ when making his new years resolution. 

I find the idea intriguing…

How about making some New Years resolutions now? 

Why wait another 5 months — doing stuff that doesn’t matter // neglecting things that do? 

I think the idea of committing to not do things a wiser action that committing to add more things to our plate. 

Why assume that it is most important to just survive — doing what needs to be done and waiting for all your ducks to be in a row before you live for the things things that really matter?

Happy New Year!
