It is the second of the holiday weeks that we go through to end the year, and as we expressed last week in this space, this is a time when everyone deserves a chance to dream and let their minds wander if it brings you to a space that feels good.
As we approach the turning of the calendar, though, that brings with it a little more wondering about the future, and usually in a positive light. The concept of a new year brings with it opportunity and promise. Even if we understand on some level that January 1 is just another day, there is some real psychological magic there.
In this space, we talk about that turning point often, for it does mark an endpoint in the financial world, most noticeably being the end of a tax year, when what happened in the past year has happened and we then move to it being time to account for it. And there is really no getting away from this, at that point, most things are set and can’t be changed.
The new year, though, can also offer this promise for change (along with more advertisements for gym memberships than you have seen for a while). And if change is something you are looking to accomplish, then this is our chance to offer you luck in that endeavor. And this doesn’t come restricted to only your business or financial world. We can get back to that stuff next week. But for now, this is a time of year when everyone deserves a little extra peace and goodwill. So may you accomplish all that you wish for in 2022 in every realm.
Happy New Year!
