“Happy New Year” is the traditional greeting at this time of year, yes? And what tends to stand out most for me when hearing that is… the “Happy”! Because whether we’re ready for it or not, those 365 days seem to fly by, and while we can’t control that part, we can control the “Happy” part.
My hope for you as we enter 2020 is that each one of you will not only commit to loving what you do but that you will LOVE THE WAY YOU DO IT! So many of my clients share that they don’t like their jobs, and after asking them the questions I do, it turns out that they don’t like THE WAY THEY ARE DOING THEIR JOBS. If I can get you to start performing every day in a way that serves you well, and at the end of each day, you feel victorious rather than defeated — then I’d say that’s a WIN/WIN for everyone. And that my friends can jump-start the “happy” factor!
So how about for January, we take the time to PURGE! That’s right…Out with the OLD, before in with the NEW! Before we can even start to get organized, we need to get rid of what no longer serves us well. That means EVERYTHING…physical stuff, electronic stuff, emotional stuff, ALL THE CLUTTER THAT’S CAUSING OVERWHELM needs to go. Get started sorting through your stuff. And if it isn’t something you NEED or LOVE (and please reach out to me if you are having trouble deciding ), then out it goes.
We are finally taking LIKE out of the equation because after all, WE LIKE EVERYTHING! That’s what gets us in trouble in the first place! So be hard on yourself and really ask yourself… “Do I need it (for business, taxes, the future, whatever) or do I LOVE IT.” We all know those things in our life we LOVE vs. LIKE. Just this simple exercise will change the way we think about consuming and holding on to something. It’s a critical first step to clearing out and making way for what is to come in this new year.
I can’t wait to see what we all make room for and manifest in 2020…BRING IT ON!
