We can get stuck in cumulative thinking.
We keep thinking ‘what’s next?”
We move forward step by step,
based on what we have done before.
This is called cumulative thinking.
But the New Year is a chance for us
to reposition where we are.
In other words, we can step
outside of this cumulative process.
We can find a better or a happier way.
So, move outside of your cumulative process.
Start from this moment.
Start afresh from now.
Imagine this is the first day of your new life
and plan to go where you should be.
What has gone before no longer matters.
You do not have to behave
as you’ve always done.
You do not have to carry the past with you.
You have a chance to reposition everything.
This New Year is much more than
the charting of a new path.
It’s also a mind shift.
It’s freeing up your thinking
and allowing yourself to start again.
