Bamboo products are all the rage. Flooring, drawer inserts and even tablecloths can be made from bamboo. This is a good thing, as bamboo is a sustainable resource. It grows so quickly that some communities restrict residents from planting it.
Change is good. Sustainable change is even better. For example, clearing off your desk is good. Committing to clearing your desk’s surface and returning items to their proper places each evening is better. Temporary changes make us feel good for a moment, but sustainable changes give us a sense of true accomplishment. When we positively alter the way we live in an ongoing fashion, we feel empowered to achieve even more.
As you pursue your goal, consider how you can design a plan to make your achievement stick. What do you need to do (or not do) to avoid backsliding? Are you following a path that you will feel good about a year from now? Make this year’s resolution one that lasts a lifetime.
