This year?

Another year.

Can you believe we’re already over a month in to this year already? Only eleven months to go.

For me, 2010 was a big year. To me, it symbolized the importance of becoming a Linchpin in an ever-changing economy.

As we zip through 2011 at an ever-increasing pace, I ask you to consider your own plans for these next eleven months.

At what cost are you willing to stay with the drudgery of a job or career that you have not an ounce of passion for?

At what cost are you willing to hide your amazing talent for the harmonica, or your unique view of the world which you capture through your photography. (Which remains a weekend hobby, only if you can spare a few moments, of course…?)

Let’s also consider just how toxic drudgery can be. Stuck in a situation you’re unhappy about only amplifies the problem. It will find a way to seep through the cracks into every other aspect of your life.

Surely you can’t just give up following the status-quo and decide you’re only going to do what YOU want to do this year. You can’t decide you’re going to turn your love of photography in to a business. You can’t build that website and online business you’ve been thinking about. After all, there are bills to be paid, babies to feed, diapers to buy, dinners at Applebee’s, and cable television to watch, isn’t there?

But maybe, just maybe, if you could grasp the fact that a lot of the people, who do decide to take the risks, actually reap the rewards, maybe then you’d be willing to give it a shot.

The world, believe it or not, has a strange ability to actually work in your favor.

What do ya say? Maybe this year?

The clock is ticking.
