As we approach the end of another year, a lot of us are in reflection mode. Our minds are full of questions swirling around what we did, didn’t do, should have done and why we did not do. There are a lot of lessons we capture to make sure we are not asking these same questions this time next year.
For some, this pandemic has forced them to consider how they want their lives to look like going forward. Is it time to start that new business? Is it time to embark on a new chapter and change jobs? Is it time to release some relationships that no longer align with your values or who you are becoming?
There are so many decisions to make. So many paths you can take. However, the first and most important decision to make is to actually to choose an action. Action requires effort. Effort does not need to be huge. It just needs to happen. Whether it is making that call, getting out of the house to meet a potential client, applying for that new job, or choosing to relocate someplace new to do something different, you must ACT.
2021 has been full of choices. Some choices came from having courage. Some were made out of fear. Take the time to review your choices and see which bucket they fall in. If you have more choices in the fear bucket, CHANGE that starting now. You don’t have to wait for a calendar year to begin.
Today, start writing your next chapter. Your next chapter that reflects the better YOU!
