02nd February is National Groundhog Day.
For the more mature amongst readers you will remember the 80’s film with Bill Murray when he gets stuck in the time warp but it actually derives from a Dutch superstition that if a groundhog (rodent not dog) emerges from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if he does not, due to cloudiness, spring season will arrive early.
So essentially, we are relying on a rodent to determine how long we have to wait for spring!
I’m not sure a rodent a shadow and the arrival of Spring is a good topic of conversation for a blog so I am going to focus on the film!
It is so easy for time to go past and us not realise how long a negative situation has become the status quo! Sometimes a small case of head in the sand is easier to deal with than facing up and making the changes that we need to make.
Last year I blogged about the change curve and how easy it is to get stuck in the curve.
Many of you will have made decisions to make changes this year. The new year is a great opportunity to do that.
We are now a month in so that’s four weeks and 31 days of the small changes towards to the goal.
How are you progressing?
If you travel in the same direction at the same speed as you have done for the last month will you be on track or far off course?
If the answer is off course then now is the time to correct it.
Time to wake up from your Groundhog day and time to take action.
