December Is Around The Corner, So?

''I need to make things happen abeg, December is around the corner'' he lamented, as if I didn't already know.

I've heard people talk about December like there's a global performance evaluation that happens during that time. I think its beyond Christmas, there's just a restlessness about the season.

At the beginning of the year we set new year resolutions. Gradually, daily hustle pushes those well intended goals to the back burner. We regain our consciousness when we realize the 'ember' months are fast upon us and like christmas shopping on December 24th, the pressure, tension and excitement leaves us dizzy and irritable.

Its okay if your life is all goals, aims, objectives and KPIs but remember, it is the seconds that make the hours, the days, the weeks, the months and the years. The quality of life we live is a direct reflection of the things we do and the decisions we make per time. 

So relax and row your boat will you? Stop looking around. You're the only one on the pitch - linesman, referee, keeper and player. If you score you win, if you don't its still your game. 

And after all is said and done, the only one you should be in competition with is yourself. Set your records, break them. In my opinion, that is all that matters.
