Without turning this article into one long cliché, there is, unquestionably, something hopeful and almost transformational about leaving one year behind and boldly entering another. In fact, the psychological effects of starting a new year have been scientifically investigated and proven many times.
It’s a fresh start, a chance to begin again, to close the door on events and experiences we would rather forget and to embrace all the possibility a brand new year brings us. It is also when we look ahead to our business goals for the year, the new projects we are about to embark on, evaluate what we would like to change, the areas we are happy with and possible new avenues to explore. And, of course, we open up a nice new budget.
What’s guaranteed to put a dampener on the enthusiasm of the coming year, however, is dragging unwanted problems or unresolved issues from this year, into the next one.
We found the article linked above to be very true, and everything it says can easily be applied to setting business goals, as well as personal.
“New Year’s gives us a sense of renewal, which causes us to think about areas in our life we want to improve [or] change and the start and stop of a clock always feels like the natural time,” says Mariana Strongin, Doctor of Psychology.
