If you like having a reason to start a new task, project, or goal, Chinese New Year is a great time to begin. It’s almost spring, and spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf. Or maybe you didn’t quite get around to successfully beginning your “traditional” New Year’s Resolutions. Chinese New Year (2019 is the Year of the Pig!) allows you a do-over because they’re still New Year’s Resolutions!
But what if you did try to implement that new goal or resolution, but you just couldn’t get it done?
Have you ever used a motivational technique to give you the oomph to make it through a task or project, but after a few times of doing that, the technique stops working? It happens to everyone. When it does, we need to pull a switcheroo on our brain and surprise it with a new tactic.
This year is special for me because I was born in the Year of the Pig. It’s “my” year! (That’s me in front of my Chinese zodiac sign in Hong Kong.) The Year of the Pig is my new tactic this year. It’s my year, so I must kick butt in it!
What new tactic will you try in order to kickstart your brain back into gear and pump up your productivity?
