Those commitments and promises to ourselves and others we (tend not to) keep!

If not now, When! Create YOU 2.0, one day at a time for the next 12 weeks. And keep those promises, those New Year's Resolutions.

Many of us have more in common with Punxsutawney Phil in Ground Hogs Day than we might realize. It is the first week of December. And we are getting ready to live the same dream and do the same thing we do every year. We will make those same New Year's Resolutions that disappear at about the same time every year. That is almost as soon as we make them.

Do you realize the number of forgotten or failed New Year's Resolutions hovers around 88%? So unless you like to play the lottery, why bother? Because it's a tradition. You may ask how this tradition get started, I don't know! But I have heard it has been around for 4000 years.

It is not difficult to see why we are like Punxsutawney Phil (who finally wakes up). To understand why we are stuck in that tradition, in the same story.

After all, a new year is a great time to reflect on our lives and participate in this 4000-year-old tradition. To look at what we have accomplished over the past year. Look at the parts of our lives that may need or that we want to change. Those things that hold us back from our dreams and prevent us from focusing on the significant challenge all of us face:

Why are we stuck in this tradition and our own Ground Hogs Day? What is the allure in waiting for New Year's Ev to make our destined-to-fail promises and commitments?

I have an idea that might change that ending, that tradition. That may make 2023 the year we wake up and create YOU 2.0. And help us be one of the 12% that do!

I want you to participate in Bluerisa's 12 Weeks To Creating YOU 2.0.

There are three basic premises to these 12 weeks:

  1. It's the first day of the rest of your life, so no time like now?

  2. We will no longer be making resolutions. We will be making promises to ourselves and others we will keep.

  3. We will create and work on fulfilling these promises every day of the year, not just on New Year's Ev.

12 Weeks To Creating YOU 2.0 consists of you receiving a little tip or task five days per week for the next 12 weeks. When finished, keeping those promises, commitments, and dreams, those New Year's Resolutions will be a new tradition. An integral part of your life. And will be the basis of that program update (PS, there will be no charge for the update).

Here are your first tasks.

It is still undecided how many of those tips or tasks you need to do to achieve a passing grade. But if you do nothing more than read the tip of the day for the 12 weeks, you will be on your way to that YOU 2.0 update.

And we may even get a diploma when done, most likely from the Wizard of Oz. Lucky for us, we will not be required to provide the broomstick!
