On April 29, 2009, President Barack Obama celebrated his 100th day in the office of the President of the United States. The first 100 days of a presidency took on symbolic significance during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration, so the period is considered a benchmark to measure the early success of a president.
We are now past the 100 day mark on the 2009 calendar, but it isn’t too late for you and I to celebrate our own successes. I know that we all set goals for ourselves at the beginning of the year and if you are like me, you have been successful with some of your goals, but others have fallen by the side.
Guess what, today can be the beginning of your next 100 days. Whether you are trying to exercise more, eat healthier, change careers, return to school, learn a new skill, or find a hobby, now is your chance. Can you imagine the feeling you will have when you have been successful with one your goals by the end of 100 days?
One of my goals is to stop biting my fingernails. I do really well for about a month and then the next thing I know my nails are gone again. What do you want to accomplish in the next 100 days? Pick one goal and tell someone else about it so that they can encourage you towards your goal. I’ll check in on you in a few months.
