New beginnings can happen any day. It doesn’t need to be a new year or new week, a new job, a new relationship, or anything special like that.

There doesn’t need to be a particular day of the week or holiday on the calendar. You can begin something new right now. You can get started moving from where you are to where you want to be this very instant.

  • Think about all the annoying situations you have been complaining about over the last few months.
  • Think about all the personal problems you have experienced over the last few months. 
  • Think about what you really, truly want for yourself in the coming months and years.

Pretty quickly, you should have a list in front of you of things that you want to tackle. Things that you need to fix.

Those are the things that you start working on it. Right now.

You don’t need any special permission. Or to wait for a better time. Just take a small action towards moving ahead.

In truth, the simplest action is to do a bit of research on what information is already out there about where you want to be.

You don’t need to invent the process. In fact, you might not even need to think about it too much. You probably just need to see what has worked for a lot of other people and mimic their behavior until you figure out a way to do it even better.


It’s easier to improve what you’ve already started. It’s impossible to refine something that doesn’t exist.

So do one thing that matters today. Do that thing you’ve been avoiding getting started on because you were looking for a better time

Invest in your future by getting started today.
