Nothing like the first day of school.
It can be nerve-racking and exciting at the same time.
One thing that its not? Boring.
You don’t have be in school to feel the impact of the first day. It signifies a changing of the seasons. Summer to Fall. Or in business, second quarter to third quarter.
Time to begin again.
It’s been years since I went to school so nowadays I live vicariously through my kids experiences.
As I see them get ready in the morning, it makes me think back to going through similar routine, but more than that I recall those same emotions.
One sticks out more than anything – nervous excitement. Nervous because its something new and you don’t know what to expect. Excitement for those same reasons.
Even when you aren’t in school, the first day of school can sharpen your focus on your goals.
First, it can be reinvigorating and help you to push thru and finish the year on a high note.
Second, it can get you thinking ahead and to focus on the goals that you want to achieve in the new year. The next six months take you into the first couple months of the year so you realize its coming soon.
One thing that never changes – always making sure you look fresh on the first day.
