Happy New Decade! (for the second time)

2020 unwritten New Year

Before Christmas, I sent a tip that wished you a Happy New Decade.

And I do so again because it is important to take a step back from time to time and ask…

Is what I am doing working?

Is it getting me closer to what I want in life and from life?

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”
(Often attributed to Albert Einstein, but the earliest record shows it came from a newspaper article quoting an attendee at a meeting to help alcoholics. https://quoteinvestigator.com/2017/03/23/same/)

Whoever said it, it is hard to refute. Are you starting this decade doing the same things as you were doing at the end of the last decade?

Do you want something different from this decade?

Probably. I know I do.

What are you going to do differently?

My best wishes, Paul
