There are only a few weeks left in 2018. Many of us “give up” at this time of year with the idea that this year is over and I will start again and try harder next year. I would like us to rethink this and restrategize with a boxer’s mentality.
Some of you know that I supported myself through school, working as a photographer. During my 3rd year of medical school, I had the opportunity to photograph Muhammad Ali at the opening of his Boxing Museum in our hometown of Louisville, KY. Despite being exhausted and post-call, it was a fantastic day with this charismatic man. I learned so much!
In the final 10 seconds of boxing round, there is a bell. The boxer starts throwing a flurry of punches and dancing about to give that extra effort to influence the judges and win that round. So “ding, ding, ding.” Here is your bell! You still have time to win the 2018 series!
What can you do by the end of the year to resolve a conflict, make a dream come true, have fun, spread love or that random act of kindness that is in you waiting to come out? Is there a goal that you can still complete? Finish this year strong. It will change the energy and intensity of your 2019!
Here’s to an excellent finish!
With love and gratitude,
