It’s Nowruz 2011! That’s the first day of spring, which is the first of the year on the Iranian calendar. It’s often called Persian New Year.
The great thing about New Year celebrations is that they remind us that we can start all over again, really anytime we want. While some might believe that the moon* is a contributing factor in how we behave (I subscribe to that notion a bit) or we need a 1st of the year for motivation, it’s quite acceptable to start a new beginning at any time. You just have to want it badly enough (I’ll have some tools to share via Ray Dalio in the coming weeks).
For those of you who aren’t buying my start over at any time philosophy and you didn’t get your resolutions together in time for Nowruz, don’t worry, Assyrian New Year is on April 1.
*Add things into one’s life starting on the New Moon, go out and celebrate during the Full Moon, and finally throw out crap and finish up projects as the full moon wanes.
