A New Year sorta feels like fresh start. A new decade seems even more significant. Possibly you have a list that will commence on New Year’s Day of things to do more and less of. Good idea. It’s an orderly start so precisely on day 1 and well we’re almost there... so go for it. However, know that you don’t need a particular day to change wishes to plans. I’m cheering you on and won’t judge you if take a re-start later in the year. On January 1, we will open the new book. Its pages are blank. You are the author.
