New YOU Day – 2017

It’s time for New YOU Day – AGAIN (And again…)!

First and foremost – Happy New Year 2017!

What IS New YOU Day?  When most people set a new routine or resolution – they pick a specific day to start.  It’s usually Monday (1st of the week), beginning of the month, or the worst one of all (Unless it’s very close to occurring) New Year’s Day!  When you do this – it gives you a “Hall Pass” to continue the behavior you’re trying to change until that reset date.  WRONG!  What a New YOU Day (Yes a take off on New Year’s Day) does – is allows you to INSTANTLY reset whenever you’ve had an error in judgment.  In Jeff Olson’s Book “The Slight Edge“, he speaks of actions as errors in judgment or slight disciplines.  Our goal is to string together more disciplines than errors.  It’s just that simple!  So again – instead of waiting for a reset date – you just instantly reset after an error in judgment.  That’s the New YOU Day way of success!

I love the pic shown with this post – and the fact that these days fell on the weekend together (To appear on the same page).

Why – and why the, “It Doesn’t Matter!!” / (And again…)?

Simply put – both are just another day!  There are going to be 52 of ’em this year – and each will be the same as well!  And this isn’t my first, second, or even third (Maybe MORE) rodeo with this concept.

The whole New YOU Day thought process come from an idea I come up with over a decade ago!

Jar Full Of Gratitude

I recently found a post about adding notes with good things that have happened throughout the year and adding them to a jar.  Then going through them at the end of the year to reflect on all the good things you’ve experienced (See the image below).

Notice they didn’t mention anything about writing down bad things.  2016 has had A LOT of deaths and wacky events – and some people are ready to write it off.

Not me!

I still have my beloved Oxygen Habit, a roof over my head, my family, and an ample supply of coffee.  In my own humble opinion – it’s been a pretty great year!

Grumbling over the spilled milk of any situation is worthless!  If there’s a lesson to be learned from it – grab it, and move on!

And if you want a great way to apply this online – try implementing Gratitude (A feeling of thankfulness and appreciation) and Edification (Uplifting enlightenment)!  It’s a virtual Gratitude Jar!

You can do this via liking, commenting, and sharing posts you find valuable.

Doing so will build a positive engagement that will help you build positive social relationships.

If you decide to do this – let me know how it’s working for you.

Have a DYNAMITE day!
