Retraining Your Hand

2014 is here and with it comes the problem of retraining your hand. For 365 days you’ve been dating documents with /13 and now, suddenly, you’re expected to retrain your hand to write /14. The problem is not retraining our brains. We know that 2014 is here. It’s that darn hand that doesn’t seem to remember!

Why is that? We do so many things on auto-pilot without really thinking about how we’re doing them. Come one, do you concentrate when you sign your name? Probably not! You’ve signed your name a zillion times and it always looks pretty much the same. You’ve achieved muscle memory, not a smart hand.

Last year an untrained hand was easier to cover up. Changing a 2 to a 3 is much easier than changing a 3 to a 4. But then if this is the biggest challenge we face all year it’s going to be a great year. Make it so!
