No. 7 - A Fresh, Clean Slate
The biggest gift we typically get from the year before is the long list of mistakes, and with every January we get to tear it up and start fresh with a clean slate, perfect for recording our future mistakes of the ensuing 12 months.
The trick here is to not repeat the mistakes from previous years' slates, but instead make some new ones. Life is all about taking on adventure, which is always fraught with a few messes along the way. This is not to say we shouldn't be adventurous or be afraid to make mistakes. How else would we learn anything and have great stories to tell later if we were so cautious? This year, make a conscious effort to fly outside of your comfort zone and dare to live life leaning on the wild side. There are no fast motorcycles or fast women required, just a willingness to learn something new about yourself -- and maybe a motorcycle, too.
