Bring on 2017 because you’re golden! Goodbye 2016 because 2017 promises to be another great year. Now is a great time to get your 2017 planner in gear and really cull priorities so you can hit the ground running so you can really hit the water rowing in the New Year. My plan for 2017 is to cut back on the mundane as much as possible to create more time. I’m filling my planner with all the right stuff and leaving the mediocre behind.
Never had a planner? Check out this post from 2014 for a blast from the past that still applies to your present and future planning.
“Before you cross the street take my hand. Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
-John Lennon, Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) from the album Double Fantasy (1981).
“Enthusiasm for one’s goal lessens the disagreeableness of working toward it.”

“You have to dream, you have to have a vision, and you have to set a goal for yourself that might even scare you a little because sometimes that seems far beyond your reach. Then I think you have to develop a kind of resistance to rejection, and to the disappointments that are sure to come your way”
-Gregory Peck (April 5, 1916 – June 12, 2003), Actor, Humanitarian, Presidential Medal of Freedom Honoree, Rower, Coached by Ky Ebright at University of California, Berkeley
