Bring in the New!

I thought you might be amenable to this rather enjoyable and satisfying ‘end-of-year ritual’ to complete the old year and bring in the new—from both a personal and professional perspective.

The simple instructions:

Sit down with a glass of sherry and a mince pie (if you live in England) or a cup of hot chocolate if you live in the US and make a note of your thoughts around the following four points. You may wish to do this in partnership with a significant other or even with the kids.

  1. What have you accomplished in the past year, personally and professionally? List both the big and the small stuff—it’s common to get over 20 items. Include things such as taking a trip or making a new friend as well as your business achievements.
  2. What do you wish to accomplish personally and professionally in this new year?  Targets, goals and dreams—think big! A wish list—not a must do list.
  3. What difficulties did you overcome to realize those accomplishments? List out the blocks, challenges, tough periods, uncomfortable decisions or turning points.
  4. What personal qualities within yourself did you evoke to get past those difficulties? Courage, strength, persistence, humility, humour and so forth.

Very best wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!
