Statistics

You may have heard the joke about a study on alternative foods where one-third of participants in a taste test enjoyed the new scientifically engineered food options, one third-did not enjoy them, and the last third ran away? Another fun statistic: one-third of the population registered with an online dating site has never actually had a date as a result of that site. And, while we’re talking statistics, here is an interesting one: Millennials now make up one-third of the workforce, having surpassed Generation X about two years ago. Oh, and did you know that students who read proficiently by third grade are more likely to pursue an advanced degree?

Clearly, reaching ‘a third’ of anything is sort of a defining line in common studies, the point where there is some semblance of shape to a situation, even if it is not as remarkable as the halfway mark. You can probably see where I’m going with this one… We are one-third of the way through 2020.

What have you done?

I hope that you’ve nailed some of your goals at work and that you’ve accomplished wonderful things in everyday life. If you haven’t quite made it to your goals just yet, then factor in this math: there are still two months left to change what this year will look like for you at the halfway point and that will happen before you still have six months to change the outcome of the entire year. In other words, the statistics are yours to create and your life is yours to shape.

Consider this your Spring cleaning, my friend. Now is your chance to sweep out the cobwebs and come up with a plan for where you want to be in two months. So I ask you, instead of questioning what you have done, tell me instead— what are you going to do?

Spring forward!
