More importantly than starting a new year with a bang, is finishing the old one well. Just like a runner, in the midst of a race, looks towards the finish line, not the days afterwards basking in the glow of winning, just the line itself, so should we look at this last month as a completion of all we strived for the past eleven. Have a project you never quite finished? Do it now. Meant to tell someone something, but never got around to it? Do it now. Want to be the best you can be? Do it now.
That way, when January rolls around, you can go back to being the lazy bum you are.
