Don’t get me wrong… I am not trying to rush summer away. In fact, I can hang on to the gorgeous weather for as long as it will stay around. Overall, my excitement comes with all the newness that September offers. In fact, I call it the new “New Year”.
Whether you have children or not doesn’t change the fact that September offers us all the chance to focus on our goals for the remainder of the year. Firstly, we are just coming off a summer of relaxing holidays or some time off from the regular grind. As such, that gives us some perspective on what we want to accomplish going into the fall and, dare I say, winter months. But let’s not get too far ahead, here. For now, we will stick to the fall.
Starting a new season of setting personal and/or professional goals is like the New Year’s resolution we all found ourselves doing at one point. Likewise, September is about new beginnings. Moreover, it gives us all the chance to reset, refocus, and go forth with motivation and renewed ambition.
