A new year brings new opportunities. The start of 2020 kicks off a new decade. As I mentioned in last week’s blog, I usually think in terms of one-year goals and planning cycles. The decade-start that rings in with this new year brings much hope for what lies ahead.
Looking back, we know that 2020 is the one-hundredth anniversary of women earning the right to vote in American elections on a consistent basis. We know that one hundred years ago, the world has glad to have World War I done. Americans were unsuspecting that the depression and World War II were on the way. The last hundred years have brought innovations, wars, expansion of our views of the universe, and heartbreaks. Just as the next hundred years will too.
Ten decades comprise one hundred years, with each decade bringing economic challenges, territorial conflict, music evolutions, and celebrations. While preparing for this new year, look back at the last decade of your life to explore what it held, to consider what you’d like to keep doing, and what you’d like to do next.
Each new year provides an opportunity for change and redirection, for learning new skills, for completing new projects. Every year is full of choices, decisions, and accomplishments. While every year may not bring what we hope for, we do have the power of choice in making the most of our days, weeks, months, and year.
Maybe this coming year brings with it a major milestone birthday, anniversary, or company anniversary. Perhaps the new year holds new product and new family member additions. Possibly the new year holds in store a hopefulness that wasn’t present before.
Create your perfect vision for 2020. Achieve it so that when 2021 is the new year, you’ll have 2020 hindsight that brings you joy, peace, and a sense of accomplishment better than ever.
What are your hopes and goals for the new year, the new decade of 2020?
