Here’s a thought to help get your new year off on the right foot. It’s the January 1 entry from Larry Winget‘s book No Time for Tact: 365 Days of the Wit, Words, and Wisdom of Larry Winget.
I’m not always Winget’s biggest fan, but sometimes he puts things so simply and so bluntly that I just can’t ignore what he has to say. This is one of those times.
Last year is over. Be done with it. Good or bad, it’s over now. The past has passed.
Maybe you had some good things happen last year — I’m happy for you. Now it’s time to go out and make some new good things happen.
Maybe you had some bad things happen. Oh, well, welcome to life; better luck next time.
It’s a new year! Learn from your mistakes and move on!
He’s right. The past has passed. It’s a new year. Another chance. Let’s make the most of it.
