365 days (at least 75% of the time)
You get the idea. A year can be as long or as short as you make it because it never changes on the calendar.
A year ago my life was very different as I lived someplace else, worked someplace else and had many other habits in my daily routine.
What could you do with a year?
- A home can be built in less than a year
- Training for a marathon can be accomplished in less than a year
- A child can be conceived and born in less than a year
According to various studies it takes 66 days to make a habit and that means that in one year you could create at least 5 new habits. You can do more than 5 if you learn more than one habit at a time. Such as working out everyday AND waking up earlier to make the most of each day.
Each year on January 1st we set new goals. We finally make changes for the better. We also make promises that we usually have broken by February 1st. Why wait?
Pick any day and start over, New Year’s Eve doesn’t matter. If you don’t like the path you took today, start again tomorrow and go in a different direction. Just know that if you keep starting over in a different direction you will most likely end up moving in a circle and getting nowhere fast!
Decide where it is you want to be a year from now and step in the right direction.
- Do you want to weigh less? Start eating right and working out today
- Do you want to make more money? Start working harder, smarter or searching for the opportunity to earn more.
- Do you want to get out of debt? Start paying off your smallest debt and working in the right direction.

We have all heard the expression that “time flies when we are having fun” and yet there is so much more to it.
Why does time fly when we are having fun? It flies because we are distracted and not paying attention to the clock. We are enjoying our life and making wonderful memories. We are being distracted from the small stuff. Our internal clock stops keeping track of all the things we need to get done and allows time to fly past.
Then there are times that we are doing something we don’t want to do or that is taking a lot of effort. Maybe that is the effort of running a race. It might be the effort of having to sit through another dull meeting at the office. For you it could be waiting in the dentist office for your turn. Any of these things make time feel like it is moving at the pace of a snail.
Interestingly enough, an hour is an hour, a minute is a minute, and a second is a second and that never changes. A great day might feel like it is over too quickly yet it takes the same 24 hours, 1440 minutes or 86,400 seconds as that other day that seemed as though it would never end.
The question is if you have the same amount of time either way, which way would you prefer to pass those moments?
If you said really slowly so you can feel like you have more time then we wish you the best in a slow life that you are subjecting yourself to.
On the other hand if you said, let the hours fly by, then we challenge you to fill each of those hours with things that you love to do! This will make the time feel like it is just racing through your fingers in a great way. Play sports, find a career you enjoy, make time for your family, learn a language, take a trip and whatever else fires you up. In other words forget that bucket list of things you might get to at some point and grab for the carousel ring.
Time is going to pass one way or another so enjoy it as it passes, quickly we hope.
