Remember your first day at school, after a long summer holiday? You looked forward to seeing friends again, while at the same time felt sad about leaving the summer behind. However you felt back then, today many people use the summer more actively, and also to explore professional and personal changes. Perhaps this is you.
You may have resolved to change your work habits, change your exercise regime, or treat people differently. Or, you may have decided to change your image, your professional goals, or your personal relationships. Whatever your decisions, the trick is to keep these commitments beyond the summer.
The challenge is when we return to the same environment after the summer, we often revert back to our “old” habits. Here are some ideas to prevent this from happening:
While the first day of school brought you your friends, the year of school brought you learning, maturity, and opened your eyes to the world. While you don’t have a teacher to do this for you anymore, you can easily make it happen yourself. This week, think about the one thing that you enjoyed most over the summer, and work to make it stick beyond September. Change provides new perspective – and increases both your value, and your motivation.
