Do We Really Need A New Year?

As we’re getting to the end of 2013 here, I want everyone to think about something…do we really need a new year? The time to think about this is now. If we hold off, it will be 2014 and it’ll be too late to do anything about it.

Personally, I don’t think we’ve gotten full use out of 2013. It was a pretty good year, but it seems like it’s got some more miles on it. I know this is a disposable culture and all, but perhaps this once we could just reuse 2013 instead of heading willy-nilly into 2014? Can we at least think about this.

Granted, not everything was that great in 2013…but do we have any guarantee that 2014 will be any better? No, we do not. 2014 could be a horrible year for all we know. Are we ready to give up on 2013 and face whatever 2014 has in store without even considering repeating 2013?

I just think it’s wasteful to give up on 2013 so easily just because a year has passed. I think we should at least consider the idea. If we do and still decide as a group to go on to a new year, well I guess that’s fine. I just think some consideration is merited.

    Really, this is the sort of thing we should have been thinking about back in September so we could have used our year more efficiently, seizing days and all.
    It’s sort of late now.
    And this is why the 7 P’s were invented in ManagerLand.
    Anyway, hi. I don’t know you but just followed a trail here from Goodreads and am killing time during a quiet (dead) workday; I just thought I’d say, in case no one else agrees that 2013 should get an extension, Happy New Year.
