The turn of a new year typically has us thinking of how we can make this year different. Whether it’s setting financial/career goals or (finally!) embracing better health habits, we’re all pursuing the same thing—to do better and be better in 2022.
Let’s take this natural opportunity to reevaluate “the way we’ve always done things,” and pursue improvement in both our personal and professional lives. Monday was Martin Luther King Jr. Day—a day that, for many Americans, is seen as another day to stay home, sleep in, and maybe catch up on the latest Netflix series.
We set apart this day from the other 364 to honor the life and legacy of a man who changed history. In this month’s Simply Good article, we learn of several different ways we can celebrate the day. Don’t worry—if you feel like you could have done better, today is a new day. Use this day as a Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-Day reboot.
While we reflect on our own country’s history of racial injustice, we also need to remember its effects elsewhere. On January 27 we observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Although the horrendous massacre of six million Jewish people and many others took place decades ago, the root of this evil still claims victims today. Hatred, fear, and ignorance remain rampant, and the only way to combat their influence is to remember how destructive they truly are. Let us not forget the events of the past, but let it motivate us to do better and be better moving forward.
We at Rework Work hope this issue finds you happy, healthy, and ready to tackle all that 2022 has in store.
