Only fools rush in. You might like to keep that idea in mind as the New Year begins. Stand back and observe the abundance of enthusiastic, yet naive energy around you as those around you rush to clean up their diets, get more active and generally make a whole bunch of intentions that will fall by the wayside by January’s end.
By all means, cheer them on. Encourage them. But if you’re reading this horoscope, chances are you probably don’t think like most people anyway. You see, the first few weeks of January is a bit like the tale of the tortoise and the hare, and you know how that ends. With that in mind, use this week to strategize and formulate a plan of action that will continue to reap rewards long after your motivated mood is over. You see, discipline trumps motivation. Don’t start this week what you cannot see yourself doing consistently until this time next year. This week is all about prior preparation preventing poor performance. Get your ducks lined up. Go over the details. Implement small but meaningful changes. Consistency over perfection will prevent you from having the same goals this time next year.
