Firstly, I want to wish all my Tamil viewers, fans, and followers a very happy Tamil New Year!  Puthandu Vazhthukal.


I love special times like this because I use it as an opportunity for a fresh start.  Whether it’s New Year’s Day on January 1st or April 14th or my birthday on November 3rd, I love seeing it as a new beginning.  I’ll pretty much find any opportunity to do this.  For example, I still relate to September as the beginning of a new phase because that’s when school starts, even though I’ve been out of school for a decade. I’m at the point now where I see every day as a fresh start and I’m training myself to see every moment as an opportunity for something new.  What this means is that even if my day started off with something negative, I don’t write off the day as ‘a bad day’. I let go of whatever happened and start the next moment from a clean slate.

See every moment an opportunity to be different and be who you really want to be.  Leverage every moment to change the trajectory of how things are going.  Just because a conversation with a team member wasn’t going the way you wanted it to for the past 5 minutes, it doesn’t have to end that way.  In every moment, you can create something new.  You’ve got to start by believing that each moment is free from the past and free from the future.  And then seize the opportunity to create that moment as you want it to be.

For example, I recently got hit by a police car.  Don’t worry, no one got hurt and our cars had very minimal damage.  I was on my way to lead a career management workshop on How To Network Effectively and I was actually 30 minutes early, excited that I’d have time to enjoy a nice lunch before the session started.  Turns out because of the accident, I was 15 minutes late and didn’t have time to eat!  I could’ve told myself that it’s just a bad day but I didn’t. I left the accident in the past and led my workshop as if nothing happened.

If you don’t like how something is going, give yourself permission to start over!  Tweet this!

The workshop went really well and I ended up getting free food at the office because there were leftovers from a special office potluck. Many other things went seemingly wrong that day but because I saw every moment as a new moment, no one incident impacted the other.  I connected with family and friends that evening and ended the day with a huge smile on my face. Just to be clear, this isn’t just because I’m a positive person. This was because I saw every moment as a fresh start.

Start by seeing every quarter as a fresh start or every month as a fresh start.  It’s a great way to let go of things from the past that aren’t serving you.  Just because you didn’t meet your targets at work in the last quarter, it doesn’t have to dictate what your next quarter will be like.  Just because yesterday you and your manager weren’t on the same page, today is a completely new day if you choose for it to be.  Just because you made some bad career choices or business decisions in the past, the next one doesn’t have to go the same way.  What happened in your past doesn’t have to dictate what will happen in your future.  Start over, start fresh and create a new reality for yourself, moment by moment.
