What are you intending to start, that you can begin today?
Ka lā hiki ola; it’s the dawning of a new day!

Jerry Seinfeld has his Red X, and I have my Green Checkmark…
It’s been walking for me (as in walking for health and fitness).
Early 2010 had brought me some immobilizing back pain. Major ouch and workout killer. Turned out my daily street running had cost me dearly, the pavement impact eroding away my lower spine’s disk cushioning. Healing has been steady but s.l.o.w. and my running days are over, but walking is still good and I’ve finally gotten the green light to ramp up my distance on a daily basis again.
That alone was fabulous news, but you know what made it even better? Starting yesterday, on the 28th, and knowing that a whole New Year was mere days away. It is incredibly sweet to work on a new goal EARLY, feeling the goodness of a fresh habit started with enthusiastic rhythm.
So what about you? What can you begin for 2011 today?
Are you someone who says, “I still have time”” or someone who says, “Why wait?”
