Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #186 — It’s the “Head” of the Year!

As of this week, we’re now living in the year 5782. No, this is not an extreme exercise in future planning. At Sunset on Monday, 6 September, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year began. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah literally translates to ‘head of the year.’

For me, in addition to being a powerfully nourishing time for family and community (and food), Rosh Hashanah is a check-point for me to reflect on where my head is …

Is my head in the game? Or am I on auto-pilot?

Is my head up seeing the world around me? Or am I heads down watching my feet?

Is my head clear? Or am I distracted by the mental chatter?

Am I making headway on my dreams? Or am I just moving in circles?

Am I heading towards the life I’ve designed? Or am I creating purely by happenstance?

“Cheers to a new year and another
chance for us to get it right.”

— Oprah Winfrey

Every new year is a new cycle. And who knew there were so many types of years (beyond calendar years and fiscal years): leap year, lunar years (Hebrew or Islamic years), tropical year, sidereal year, anomalistic year, eclipse year, or Gaussian year … and, yes, they all have different durations!

So, given that variety, who is to say when your year starts?

Now … get out of your head.

Whether you are Jewish or not, I invite you to use this week, this ‘head of the year,” to clear your head, get a head start, turn things on their head, dive head long into creating your life, so you can live head and shoulders above your wildest dreams, and fall head over heels in love with yourself and your life!

As we all head off into this new year, may cooler heads prevail (this verbal playground was all I could come up with off the top of my head, so don’t please bite my head off).

What is your year heading towards?
