Sometimes, there is no fix left.
Sometimes, you've done everything you know how to do, and nothing is getting better.
Sometimes, all the perseverance you can muster isn't giving you any indication or peace that things will be better if you just hang on a little longer.
Change is hard. You get comfortable with the predictable. You've been doing it one way for years, then you have to wake up one day and start doing a different thing.
And somewhere from deep inside you, a little voice says, "Different might not be predictable, but it might be better."
It's a new year. Changes begin now.
Catherine Field, who teaches at Southern Illinois University, said it better than I can:
"It was the worst decade. Ever. Of all the decisions I made during the damned thing, the best was to outlive it. So it couldn't say it got me too."
What are you going to do differently this year?
