september is the new january

in keeping with my recent theme of renewal and fresh starts, why not consider september the start of the new year

this fast company article makes great points about the benefits of beginning now.  here are some of my favorites:

  • access to people-- no holiday madness to work around
  • insight from the year thus far-- i love this idea.  take a minute to reflect on the what you wanted from 2015 while you still have time to achieve it.
  • a head start-- self-explanatory and SO satisfying
  • no pressure-- there aren't suggestions for new year's resolutions and irritating, utopian tips on how to keep them.
