Happy New Year!

Wow, I think we would all agree that 2020 was a year like no other, right?! I am writing this shortly after the winter solstice – the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. Yule rituals have to do with letting go of what you no longer want in your life, and being intentional about what you want to create in the year ahead. In the northern hemisphere, from here forward as more light returns to our days we anticipate things getting brighter and brighter. I would say that is an apt metaphor for our hopes and dreams for ‘brighter’ days ahead, in more ways than just the sun.

Last year I reported that lots of travel and living in an Eastern European country had given me ongoing opportunities to experience adjusting to differences and change, confronting my habitual thoughts and behavior, and continuing to transform my way of being. I had become better at being a more conscious creator of my life. It will be no surprise to you that this year COVID-19 has done the same thing, both personally and professionally.

Professionally, I have continued to expand my learning about embodied transformation, positive intelligence, inspirational leadership, and resilience. I love how this has deepened my service to my clients, and how they are getting even more impactful results, faster.

I have also been learning about how to create and launch an online course. I did market research in preparation for offering a new program in 2021 to a target audience of people who are working on climate change and sustainability. This program will equip people to implement change faster, turn conflict into collaboration, and achieve breakthrough solutions that are sustainable. This ‘forward focus’ approach is the basis for my annual New Year Reflection Questions.

For many years my annual tradition has been sharing these questions with family, friends, former students, and colleagues.  Many people have told me they love these annual questions, and I am delighted to offer them again so you can share them with the people in your life.

It’s easy to get discouraged by all the problems and needs in the world. The sheer volume can feel daunting, and it often seems impossible. There’s just too much to be done! And one person cannot do it all. But EVERY act, large or small, makes a difference. Focus on what you CAN do, and our acts of service create a ripple effect that we will not be able to see. You can’t do EVERYTHING, but you can do SOMETHING. The world needs you! 

When we each show up as our best self and do something each day, collectively we will change the world… one thought, one word, one action at a time.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and I am wishing you a year filled with abundance, laughter, peace, love and joy. 

THANK YOU for all the ways you are making a difference.

2021 New Year’s Reflection

I love the milestone of the passing from one year to the next. 

It’s a perfect time to reflect back on the past year…. And then look forward to consciously create your year ahead.  With all of the turbulence in our countries and in the world, more than ever we are all needed to step up and play the role that is uniquely ours to play.  It’s time to share your talents, skills and gifts with a world that desperately needs them.

Future-oriented, solution-focused questions can generate powerful energy to create what we want in our lives. 

Click on the link below in Cool Resource to download the list of some of my favorite questions for transitioning from one year to the next.  You can edit them or add your own to make this activity meaningful for you, your family, and your teams.

I encourage you to keep the questions handy, and answer them frequently - all year long!

Please share the questions with whomever you like.  I love hearing about how these questions are used and what opens up for you, so please send me a message and let me know!

Enjoy !!
