“We fail to realize that mastery is not about perfection. It’s about a process, a journey. The master is the one who stays on the path day after day, year after year. The master is the one who is willing to try, and fail, and try again, for as long as he or she lives.” George Leonard.
How are those New Year’s Resolutions going? Didn’t think anyone still thought about those this far into the year did you? If you feel like you’ve already “fallen off the path,” it’s ok. Remember, change is a process. Just because you may have stopped actively working on your goal doesn’t mean you can’t re-start and keep going. Stopping during a process of change does not equal failure, it just means you need to reflect on what happened and pick up where you left off, or maybe it means you need to create a new plan. You already have 3 months of experience to inform you on what worked and what didn’t. Don’t wait until next year to try again, try again now!
