I figure a great start to the year would be to show up. I don’t believe for a moment the saying that “90% of life is showing up.” There’s just too much great work to be done for success to be reduced to that. But there is something to be said for having a presence, establishing a reputation. And then following through.
One goal of mine this year is to show up on this blog. I get a lot of value out of the time spent reflecting on life and processing it in words, hitting the publish button. And I know many people who read the words every time I post. I want to be that consistent presence in 2013, and I’ve already thought about how I’m going to execute that plan. You’ll be hearing about it by Friday in my Three Words post for the year. My sister-in-law Jess has already asked me about my three words, so that’s pretty cool.
As I said, that post is coming Thursday or Friday. But I wanted to begin here with a simple post on the first day of the year. Showing up is a big part of life. I’m here. You’re here. Let’s pursue greatness.
