How is the second half of this year going to look like, for you? Three reframing options for starting from scratch again and making the most out of this year

Time flies when you're having fun, they say.
And once again, they are right.

Today is July 1st and, incredibly enough, the first half of 2018 is gone already.
Instead of wondering about how well you did in the first half and how much you achieved already, I would like to ask...

How are you going to use the second half of this year?

If you have been all in for the goals and the resolutions you choose for yourself day after day for the last six months or even just most of the time, I cherish you and I am sure you will keep shining and kicking in the second part of 2018 as well. Congratulations, you rock!

And... what if you didn't?


People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.
Hilary Hinton Ziglar, better known as Zig Ziglar [1926-2012]

If you didn't, no biggie.
You can see the first six months as a social experiment you went for before starting to "play hard" for the real thing, one day at the time.
You can consider the previous weeks as a perfect way to discover what didn't work for you and now you are going to do something different, one day at the time.
You can...

[Scarlett O'Hara's notorious "Tomorrow 
is another day" is your motto, from now on]

You can do whatever you want, one day at the time, for the coming six months.
No matter how bad yesterday could have been. 
Today is a new day. And tomorrow is going to be a brand new day as well. Make them count.
