We are quickly moving towards 2021 and I encourage you to pause and look back before you dive forward into next year. Make yourself a cup of tea and invest in yourself – do a careful audit of the recent past that’s based in facts and free of judgement.
A long reflection of the last 12 months can help you understand if your daily life still aligns with your overall values and voice. If it doesn’t, you may find yourself needing to make some changes.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to celebrate the things you have accomplished over the last year before you head into the new one. Like reflection and planning, celebrating should be about both your work life and your home life. You should feel equally proud of striking a lucrative deal with a new client and mastering a hobby or getting more in touch with your spiritual life.
We often measure success by the things we can see: money, homes, cars. Often, though, the things most worth celebrating are the ones we can’t put our hands on. Take a little time to celebrate those intangible assets as you head into the new year. Your mind and heart will thank you.
Peace and Love, Jim
