2019 is almost over!?!? Can you believe it? I know that I can't! As we approach the end of every year, I like to do two things to bring the year to a close. We are going to talk about the first one in this newsletter and you will have to come back and check out next week's newsletter for the other one! (How is that for a teaser? Are you going to come back next week? Let me tell you, you should! Hint, Hint...)
At this time every year, the pace of life seems to speed up a bit. We are all the hustling around doing last minute shopping, or racing to holiday parties, or trying to tie up loose ends at work before the end of the year. Life gets crazy! Every year at around this time, just before we ring in the new year, I like to carve an hour out of my day to reflect on the successes and failures of the past 365 days!
- What did I accomplish?
- What could I improve on?
- What would I like to change as we enter the new year?
- What was my biggest failure during the year? (and the important follow-up question - How could I have prevented it?)
- Did my health improve or regress?
- What do I wish that you had done more of?
- What do I wish that you had done less of?
- What is the most valuable lesson that I learned this year?
Please notice that all of those questions are for you to answer about YOUR year. These are personal questions because we cannot possibly answer those questions for other people.
This year, however, is a little different... I will take about 2-3 hours to do this exercise this year. Why? Remember that this is not just the end of 2019, but it is also the end of a decade. 2020 begins in 11 days! So take some extra time to reflect on the past 10 years too!
How much has your life changed in the last 10 years?
Mine has changed immeasurably in that time! And I am sure that yours did too!
This will be our last newsletter before the Holidays hit!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa to all of you from the FC&R Team!
